Charles River School

“At Charles River School, we believe in academic excellence and a childhood, too,” says Gretchen Larkin, Head of School. “We nurture children while fostering independence, help them understand their intellectual strengths and steadfastly believe in their capacity to succeed— both academically and socially.”

Located in Dover, Massachusetts, Charles River School focuses on igniting children’s curiosity, encouraging creativity, and cultivating their intellectual engagement. CRS graduates know themselves, understand others, and shape the future of our diverse world with confidence and compassion. Using a thematic model, teachers carry unifying themes through different subjects, encouraging students to make connections among ideas, as well as to collaborate with their peers. Students learn both inside and outside of the classroom, engaging in hands-on activities in environments ranging from labs, to studios, to wetlands. For more information, visit
