The Chestnut Hill School, a coeducational day school located in a residential section of Newton, MA, encompasses a preschool program, an all day Kindergarten, and Grades 1 to 6. 270 children are enrolled, with two sections at each grade level. Because of the comparatively small size and the favorable student-teacher ratio, The Chestnut Hill School is able to offer a rigorous academic program that embraces diversity and promotes community. Special subjects are art, computers, library, music, physical education, science, Spanish, and woodworking. Before- and after-school programs are optional.
