Dr. Albert F. Argenziano School at Lincoln Park

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>A roughly $35 million renovation completed in 2007 transformed this K-8 school into a state-of-the-art teaching facility. Formerly called the Lincoln Park Community School, it is now named for former School Superintendent Dr. Albert F. Argenziano. Inside the gleaming, energy-efficient building are over 40 classrooms, a new Library/Media Center, and a Math & Science Technology Center—all outfitted with cutting-edge teaching technologies.</p>
<p>The expansive grounds now feature renovated playing fields and a jungle gym. Over 490 students attend the school and roughly two-thirds are English Language Learners. The school's Structured English Immersion Program provides intensive English instruction. Meanwhile, Argenziano is an international demonstration site for the <a href="http://www.qisa.org/">Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations</a>, a nonprofit program that helps students set goals and reach them. The social-emotional curriculum, <a href="http://www.somerville.k12.ma.us/education/components/faq/faq.php?sectiondetailid=13882">Second Step</a>, is also taught to grade K-6 students.</p> <p>Test scores are available on the school's website and <a href="http://profiles.doe.mass.edu/search/map.aspx?mode=g&county=Middlesex&town=362">here</a>. Principal Barbara O'Brien heads the school. </p>
