School Notes

  • The Learning Project is located in the Back Bay of Boston, a block from the Clarendon Street Playground, the school's "playyard;" five blocks from the Boston Public Library Main Branch--the school's "library;" and five blocks from the Copley Square T station.
  • The school is committed to keeping its tuition relatively low and has a robust financial assistance program. Both are reflections of a strong commitment to socio-economic diversity.
  • Separate Subject Teachers work with each class several times a week in art, music, physical education, social emotional learning, Spanish and science.
  • Guided by a commitment to teaching in the "workshop model", the school's faculty challenges every child to do his or her personal best.
  • A formal core values/character education program has always been a centerpiece of the school.
