At Charles River School, curious students thrive in an environment that celebrates academic excellence and the joy of childhood. Children in grades pre-K-8 learn to take responsibility for themselves and others through investigation and revision, solving problems, and asking new questions—both in and out of the classroom. Students are surrounded by masterful teachers who are personally committed to collaboration and connection across grades and among diverse backgrounds. Charles River School’s progressive approach to education allows students to explore different angles and think through disciplines by way of real-world themes and hands-on projects. This has a profound effect on what they learn since they understand the “why.” Located in Boston’s Metrowest region, Charles River School’s beautiful, 16-acre campus in Dover— just 10 minutes from I-95 and Route 9—features bright, spacious classrooms, a wetlands laboratory, playing fields, and a state-of-the-art middle school building.
