My son (soon to be in the 5th grade) has done very well at Pierce. We moved to Brookline from the South Shore 'burbs when he was in the 2nd grade. After a rocky start (it's VERY different -- in a good way -- from the suburbs), I'm happy to say that he's thrived here and has become very independent, for ex.: it's safe enough for kids to walk to and from school here. We love being able to walk/bike/take the T to get around. Much of the school has an open floor plan, which concerned me at first because my kid has ADHD, but the services here are excellent. It's also turned out that the openness of the school works well for him, because he can take a break unobtrusively when he needs one. The school also is, as another reviewer has noted, economically and socially diverse, and offers a welcome break in that sense from the suburbs. Your kids will meet children at Pierce from around the world and from different backgrounds. Pierce is a vibrant urban school that emphasizes and encourages earning, reading, critical and creative thinking. Parents are also encouraged to be involved in the school. I would say there's a very positive atmosphere overall. Come visit and see for yourself! :)

Pierce is an excellent school in every aspect. The location is great and so are the teachers. My daughter and son are very fond of school life.

It is socioeconomically and racially diverse.
