What makes our school special?
Parents considering a safe and effective school need to look no further than the Warren Prescott School in Charlestown. The school is housed in two buildings, with the Lower School located at 50 School Street and the Upper School across the way at 8 Pearl Street. Teachers, parents, and others who make up the school community form a strong team with a proven record. It’s a small school with family atmosphere. Parents are welcome visitors, and the staff is outstanding.
We focus on the whole child, with an emphasis on academics as well as enrichment. We provide art, music, and physical education classes for all students. There are support programs for students with special needs. The school has a growing after-school program which includes voluntary participation in a variety of programs including theater, chorus, fitness, math, and many others. In 2009, we initiated a sailing program with Courageous Sailing. We also offer an optional fee-based extended day program in Kindergarten, 1st grade and 2nd grade. We have a mandatory extended day program for students in grades 6 – 8, two days each week, with programs in Latin, Spanish, and Shakespeare.
