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–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.” Our students are surrounded by masterful teachers who are personally 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 our mission to graduate students who “know themselves, understand others, and shape the future of our diverse world with confidence and compassion.” We are intentional in our ongoing work to cultivate an environment in which all members of our community learn the skills
and develop the tools necessary to thrive in the ever-changing, 21st-century world.
Join us at our open houses on Oct. 15, Nov. 11, and Nov. 17.
