    Academic Excellence for Every Child
    As the birthplace of public education in this nation, the Boston Public Schools is committed to transforming the lives of all children through exemplary teaching in a world-class system of innovative, welcoming schools. We partner with the community, families, and students to develop in every learner the knowledge, skill, and character to excel in college, career, and life.

    Our responsibility is to ensure every child has great teachers and great school leaders. In the Boston Public Schools we tailor instruction to meet the individual needs of every student. Together, we are:

    Strengthening teaching and school leadership
    Replicating success and turning around low- performing schools?
    Deepening partnerships with parents, students, and the community?
    Redesigning district services for effectiveness, efficiency, and equity
    By securing new flexibilities and resources, we have intervened in our lowest-performing schools, many of which are showing greater growth than the district average. By partnering with community organizations and expanding grant opportunities, we have expanded science, arts, athletics and doubled summer learning opportunities to end the cycle of summer learning loss.

    Federal stimulus dollars allowed us to create Parent University, one of the first in the nation, to deepen the home-school connection. We have increased the number of schools serving students with disabilities with inclusive settings from four to 26 and are moving toward inclusive settings in every school. Investments in teacher training and stronger assessments have enhanced our ability to serve English Language Learners, who in 2013 saw a graduation rate increase of over seven percent.

    Today we remain focused on ensuring every school is one that any parent would be happy to choose. Learn more about us...
