I am somebody special and smart, with kindness and love in my heart. I pledge to work hard everyday, so I may proudly say, I am the best at what I do, I can even teach you!
We have just three school rules:   
Do no harm.
Submit to the common good.

We are located in the Jamaica Plain section of Boston near the Arnold Arboretum. Outside, there is a new playground, a basketball court, Slocum Brook, and a forest which is home to a flock of wild turkeys. Inside, there's so much going on. We have parent-funded programs, including PE, music, and dramatic and visual arts. Our library is amazing as is our health program supported by Faulkner Hospital.Our science and technology center is home to many animals and computers. During the year there are special events like Birthday Book assemblies, the Winter Festival, the Science Expo, and Math Night. We go on field trips to the Science Museum, Sturbridge Village, Paul Revere's House, and many other places.
