Let this school know you found them on Boston magazine’s Find It Boston.

This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


A progressive, independent Pre-K through grade 8 school in MetroWest Boston, Charles River School (CRS) has been creating lifelong learners for more than 100 years. CRS students explore new angles and think through disciplines by way of real-world themes. This has a profound effect on what they learn since they understand the “why.”

CRS students are surrounded by masterful teachers who are committed to collaboration and connection. We offer a co-teaching model with two full-time, experienced faculty members in each classroom. CRS’s unwavering commitment to equity, belonging, and community life is rooted in its mission to graduate students who “know themselves, understand others, and shape the future of our diverse world with confidence and compassion.” CRS is intentional in its ongoing work to cultivate an environment in which all members of the community learn the skills and develop the tools necessary to thrive in the ever-changing, 21st-century world.
