The student drop-off procedure is changing as of Monday 3/8/2021. Instead of having students enter through the front doors on Shawmut Avenue, parents should bring students to their grade-level drop-off door along Shawmut Avenue in the area inside the gates. The doors are marked with their grade level, teachers are inside to welcome students into the building.

Parents may drop their students off until 8:30. At 8:30, the teachers will leave the rooms and bring students to class – if you arrive to drop off your student after 8:30, you must bring them up the ramp on Shawmut Avenue.

COATS: If your child needs a coat, please request one here – we have a limited number of coats available, we will try our best to fill all requests!

We Are All Connected

We are a diverse and dynamic public elementary school in the heart of Boston’s South End. Our nearly 600 students live in nearly every neighborhood in Boston, speak over 8 languages, and represent many different cultural backgrounds.

Our school’s guiding principle is Ubuntu, a Zulu word that means I am because we are.

This spirit of community represents our school’s commitment to offering a place for families to come together to make their community stronger.
