Mission Grammar School is a small, urban Catholic elementary school established in 1889 in Roxbury, Massachusetts.
It serves students from diverse religious, ethnic and economic backgrounds.
Our goal is for the students to profit from a traditional curriculum of basic skills with emphasis on language arts and mathematics.
Our most valuable resource is a staff that strives to work in close collaboration and with mutual respect, enabling them to meet the educational needs of the students in a school with limited resources.
We strive to enable each student to reach his or her full potential in a faith-based community rooted in gospel values.
