Apple Orchard School

     Tel: (617)731-6463
Grades: NS - K | 95 students
At The Apple Orchard School we feel an environment of trust and positive feelings toward learning and toward people are the cornerstones of our philosophy.
The first three years of school are critical in creating this attitude.
We hope that every child will find many areas of success and enjoy learning about himself and others, as well as beginning to learn about the large world of cognitive skills.
The school's goal is to foster in a child a feeling that he or she is a wonderful person, who can learn to cope with difficulties along with successes.

The Apple Orchard School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, marital status, or disability in the administration of its educational policies, employment practices, scholarship and other school administered programs and activities.
