Warren-Prescott K-8 School 5

Posted October 20, 2014

Warren-Prescott is an excellent school with a wonderful community feel. It provides a great learning environment, capable and caring teachers and staff, a committed principal, and a terrific family community. The Warren-Prescott School is a neighborhood school in the best sense of the word - with local roots in the community and families who care - while still being inviting and inclusive for families from other neighborhoods. One of the many important things the families organize is a very strong after-school program, with arts, language, sports and more. In addition, Charlestown offers very good athletic programs nearby in soccer, lacrosse, hockey, tennis and other sports. As far as test scores - the GreatSchools Rating is either out of date, not very accurate, or both. The Warren-Prescott School's test scores are comparable to the best schools in Boston, and in the suburbs (comparing those children who are not living with the additional challenges of poverty).

The parent involvement is very high. Teachers and faculty care about students. It's a great Boston Public School choice.

This is one of the best schools in the Boston Public School system. The parent and community involvement is very high. They offer extended day programs from k-4. Extended day is available for k-2 until 6pm. Each year the school has an extensive waiting list for entrance to new students due to high demand. Those families that don't get in to WP typcically move out of Boston; a real problem for the city. The information on the stats for WP need to be updated on this site. Michelle Davis is now the Principal.

The school is making a difference in children's lives be offering extended days for children to improve their math and english skills. They have also partnered with MGH to combat child obesity.

I am a grandparent whose grandchildren have transferred from private schools to Warren Prescott and see a great opportunity for them to grow within this diverse environment. Warren Prescott is headed by a strong principal, who is truly commited to the education of youth, even given reduced budgets and mandatory program cuts.

We transferred out of the independent school system and joined the Warren-Prescott community this past fall. We are thrilled with our choice and are very impressed with the dedication and commitment of not only the principal and teaching staff, but of the parent/caregiver community as well. The curriculum is appropriate and challenging and the homework keeps parents and caregivers abreast of work being done on a daily basis. The open-door policy of the principal creates a warm, friendly environment that encourages constructive discourse and communication among staff, parents, teachers, and the entire school community.
