A Global Future

We make some decidedly different choices that we believe will better prepare your child for a globally-connected world.

This is not just about technology. Our goal is much more powerful. We aim for your child to develop a meaningful international perspective, cultivate a broad range of skills, and have the opportunity to explore the world.

Our International Curriculum

Hand-picked international curricula provide your child with an academic advantage.  Each curriculum is rigorous and has real-world applications.  From our Toddler program right through the High School, the standards are internationally benchmarked so we know where your child stands in relation to a global cohort of children their age.

Curricula Desired by Colleges and Universities

Our approach culminates with the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme, one of the most respected high school curricula in the world. The IB diploma is a passport to selective higher education in the US and around the world, and is highly sought-after by admissions personnel.

Real World Application

Learning does not just happen in the classroom, it occurs in relation to the real world. Your child will participate in activities and have experiences not possible in other schools. Our students can take trips not just locally, but also to other continents. As a student at a Nord Anglia Education school, your child will have access to The Global Classroom, an online learning platform where they can connect with peers around the world.

Better Progression Through Personalization

We believe there is a big difference between teaching and learning, and are committed to offering your child progressive learning experiences tailored to their individual needs. 

In the Lower School your child will develop an understanding of their own learning styles, and will become an active participant in their own learning journey.

Teachers set individualized targets for their students and provide continuous feedback, ensuring your child receives the right balance of support and challenge. We believe all students have the ability to perform at a high level and our goal is to help them on that quest.

Join the only school in Boston that can offer your child this specialized combination of world-respected curricula, a child-centered learning approach, and genuinely global experiences.
