Welcome to Young Achievers

Our school is dedicated to creating an exceptional teaching and learning environment in which science and math concepts, explored by new technologies, are central to teacher and student inquiry.

Our school is governed by a democratic participatory process that relies on active partnerships with families, students, community members and community institutions.

We make a collective commitment to social justice through academic excellence for the diverse student body enrolled at our school from throughout the city of Boston.

Our rigorous academic and social curriculum is designed to maximize each student’s potential for critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, community involvement, and responsible leadership.
