Visiting Blue School

Blue School is best understood by spending time in our classrooms. Of course, you can read about our values and our community. You can learn about the curriculum our Pre-primary, Primary and Middle School programs. You can get a sense of how we think about diversity, equity and inclusion. You can even learn about our High School Placement process and see where our graduates go after Blue School. But we know that when you walk through our buildings, you’ll see and hear the balance of academic, creative and self and social work in every room. You’ll feel the way that each child’s voice is heard and amplified. You are welcome to visit us for an open house or a tour.

ADMISSIONS TOURS

Our tours take place while school is in session. They are an opportunity to look closely. We enter classrooms to observe conversations, to see the documentation on the walls, to watch the way students treat one another and to hear the voices in which teachers speak to children and in which students speak to each other. The connections between people are palpable. From 2 year olds to 14 year olds, you’ll see children who are seen and known and who are showing up with their full selves.

We offer tours of each division of the school: Pre-primary, Primary and Middle School. If you are interested in learning about our programs for 2-4 year olds, we will spend most of the tour looking at our Pre-primary classrooms, discussing our materials-rich, inquiry-driven programs. Our Primary tours are focused on getting to know our kindergarten-3rd grade classrooms. You will learn about our Big Studies, year long inquiries that take place in each class, as well as our thoughtful reading, writing, math, science, Spanish and STEAM classes. Our 4th-8th grade tours will introduce you to our Upper-primary and Middle School programs. You’ll spend time in our newest building at 156 William Street, learn about Middle School curriculum and see Math, Novels & Nonfiction and Integrated Studies classes in session.

Most importantly, no matter how old your child is, you will get a feel for the people who make up the Blue School community: a diverse group of students, teachers and staff members who are committed to being in thoughtful relationship with each other. We are so excited to welcome you to Blue School.
