Fayerweather Street School
765 Concord Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138
Started by a group of Cambridge parents and educators, this school stresses competence in literacy, communication and computation; problem defining, research and problem solving; physical coordination; and interpersonal relations. Beginning in prekindergarten, children are presented with choices and learn to assess their results. After kindergarten, in grades 1-8, learning occurs in mixed-age groups. Individualized folder work supplements choice times, literature and math groups, art, science and social studies activities, and daily times for writing and reading. Children work with specialist teachers in Spanish, wood shop, music, library and sports. Eighth graders perform in-school community service as part of their program. An after-school program that includes a variety of focused activities is available at all grade levels. The school's location allows for field trips that utilize the rich educational and cultural resources of the Boston/Cambridge community.
