From Charles River School

Charles River School encourages children in grades PreK- 8 to experience the world around them in order to see what's possible. At CRS, we believe that students' intellect and optimism will carry them far; their inquiry and creativity will help them grow. Our dedicated, seasoned faculty connect knowledge, wonder and outcomes to drive high engagement.

Our students explore different angles and think through disciplines by way of real-world themes and hands-on projects. This has a profound effect on what they learn since they understand the “why.” As they build practical skills, they also discover new interests and take responsibility for themselves, their communities, and the future.

As parents and as educators, we want our children to be intellectually engaged in order to become compassionate, independent, and resilient. This is the benefit of a CRS education.

    Charles River School Reviews

    3 reviews
    CRS is a wonderful school where children are excited to learn. My two children came in the later grades and I am so happy we made the switch. We've been impressed with the quality of the teachers and their ability to be creative and flexible in developing curriculum. The integration of technology is particularly thoughtful and impressive. My children are genuinely happy to go to school each day and are excited to share with me what they are learning. I can't think of a better environment for kids, especially during the challenging adolescent years. CRS is building a new middle school building which will be a tremendous asset to the beautiful campus, and will replace the one out-dated building.
