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.


The Fessenden School, West Newton MA, is more than an
independent day and boarding school for boys in Pre-K-Grade 9. It’s
the perfect intersection of tradition and innovation. A place where
tried and true educational techniques are woven seamlessly into a
STEAM-inspired, passion-based curriculum. A diverse, inclusive, and
nurturing community that emphasizes academic excellence and
character development.

Parents recognize faculty for understanding how boys learn best and
for providing the individual support and encouragement children need
to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Fessenden also has
the distinction of being one of the few schools, worldwide, invited to
partner with NuVu (an innovation school founded by MIT graduates)
to deliver an academic program that encourages students to be
creative problem solvers, critical thinkers and global citizens. NuVu
helped Fessenden design its spectacular Ciongoli Center for
Innovation and its project-based curriculum - a model that hundreds
of educators have visited Fessenden to experience firsthand.
