Academically adventurous students thrive at Commonwealth School, an independent high school dedicated to intellectual and artistic exploration. Creativity and individuality flourish here, nurtured by Commonwealth’s thought-provoking curriculum rooted in rigorous analysis, focused attention, and inquiry. Eighty-eight percent of the faculty have advanced degrees, and they work closely with students to unearth their interests, develop their skills, and boost their confidence. College-level electives include axiomatic set theory, organic chemistry, jazz theory, life drawing, and more. Our location Boston’s Back Bay immerses students in the city and its opportunities, from conducting research at the Boston Public Library to interning at the State House. Small classes and dedicated faculty advisors ensure personal attention, while daily all-school meetings and unique traditions create a close-knit community in which students feel challenged and supported. Students discover their passions, follow where their curiosity leads, and grow into thoughtful and inquisitive young adults.
