The arts at Charles River School are a critical component of the overall academic program.

Through art, music, and performing arts, students develop their creativity and problem solving skills while learning important concepts and techniques.  In line with our thematic approach, the arts are often integrated with the classroom themes and subjects.  From African drumming, to singing and writing thematic songs, to building Greek temples, to designing Turkish rugs, the arts offer meaningful and enriching experiences. 


The CRS Chorus (Grades 4-8) repertoire is an eclectic blend of jazz, pop, folk and classical styles. The chorus performs at Winter Festival, on May Day/Grand Persons' Day, as well as at sharing assemblies during the school year. The emphasis is on enjoyment of singing and ensemble experience while developing control of pitch, dynamics, diction and harmonization. Chorus meets early Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
Charles River School is a PreKindergarten through Grade 8 independent school that honors the pursuit of academic excellence and the joy of childhood. We nurture each child by igniting curiosity, encouraging creativity, and cultivating intellectual engagement. Our graduates know themselves, understand others, and shape the future of our diverse world with confidence and compassion.
