A wonderful school! This small, diverse school is in East Boston, MA. I believe that the teachers and administrators are very decicated and caring people. Parent involvement is encouraged and gratefully welcomed. My son attends this school and is appropriately and positively challenged in the classroom. I would not want him at any other school!
