What Makes Our School Special
At the Harvard-Kent we focus on the whole child: academics, health and wellness, and character. Our Fruits and Vegetables Grant provides healthy snacks for every child, every day. Our students' academic gains are some of the highest in the city, earning us Level 1 Status. Our math scores are among of the highest in the city and we are piloting a new and exciting math curriculum that helps students develop a deep understanding of math concepts. We offer a daily enrichment block where students choose from a menu of exciting activities that extend their learning in new ways. We offer a variety of programs for diverse learners, including: inclusion, general ed, Sheltered English Immersion, and programs for children with special emotional and learning needs. We have a gymnasium with two full-time gym teachers to ensure every student has physical education class at least once per week. We also have a full time science teacher with dedicated science lab and outdoor classroom. Every student participates in special science instruction in our spacious science lab once per week, grades 4 & 5 have science twice per week. We have Expeditionary Learning curriculum in grades 3, 4, and 5. All our students receive at least a half-year of music and a full year of visual arts and/or computers. We are also excited to offer students a brand new state-of-the-art computer lab donated by the Boston Celtics. Last but not least we have The Harvard-Kent Leadership Scholarship. The Harvard-Kent Leadership Scholarship is an effort by local community leaders that supports our art and music programs and has provided $1,000 college scholarships to two 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders for the past eleven years.
Our Mission is to be a well respected, academically excellent, warm, and nurturing urban school that cultivates a diverse community of children to become lifelong learners and leaders.
