About

Atrium School is a progressive pre-K–grade 8 independent school where children flourish as skilled learners and develop as whole people. With roots in progressive education and a founding commitment to equity and justice, Atrium values children as active scholars and the school experience as preparation for responsible global citizenship. The curriculum is grounded in interdisciplinary learning experiences that spark curiosity, encourage rigorous discussion and reflection, inspire academic excellence, and instill a sense of responsibility for the well-being of others and of the world around them. Located in the heart of Watertown’s vibrant East End, Atrium cultivates a thriving learning ecosystem where students are actively engaged—as explorers of a dynamic environment where everyone is heard, known, and valued. The school community is broadly diverse, representing and including a wide range of cultures, ethnicities, family structures, and socio-economic standing. Atrium is prepared to effectively teach, learn, and meet their students’ needs in any scenario, including face-to-face, remote, and hybrid.
