West Somerville Neighborhood School

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>This newly renovated, state-of-the-art K-8 school is home to over 320 students, including a whip-smart Science Olympiad Team that makes a habit of winning state prizes. The school's location near Tuft's University creates opportunities for joint programs. A very active PTA hosts events and fundraisers as well as Family Nights to draw the school community together. Meanwhile, the school itself "places a strong emphasis on differentiated instruction and inclusion in the classroom for all students."</p>
<p>Outside, the modern building is flanked by a school garden out front, a playground on the side, and a black-top area behind the school for outdoor exercise. The school is an international demonstration site for the <a href="http://www.qisa.org/">Quaglia Institute for Student Aspirations</a>, a nonprofit program that aims to help students set goals and achieve 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 students in grades K-6. Numerous after-school activities are also offered.</p> <p>Principal Thelma Davis leads the school. 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>.</p>
