We are so pleased that you are considering Charles River School! 
Since our founding more than 100 years ago, Charles River School students have learned to use both inquiry and creativity to build practical skills, discover new interests and take responsibility for themselves, their communities, and the future. Our school offers students in PreKindergarten through 8th Grade a global curriculum grounded in thematic, hands-on teaching and learning.  CRS classes are small, learning is personalized, and teachers are dynamic and accessible.
At CRS, curious students thrive because of our intentional cultivation of their individual academic success and enrichment as well as their social/emotional development. With inspiration in and out of the classroom, our students enthusiastically apply knowledge to new situations. Our graduates go on to the best high schools in the area and stay connected to CRS through our close alumni network.
In order to limit the number of people on campus this fall, the Admissions Office will offer a variety of virtual open houses, information sessions, and individual tours to allow families interested in the 2021-2022 school year to get to know us better. In the meantime, we hope our website will serve as an introduction to what makes CRS unique.
