Most of our students begin their experience at Boston Collegiate Charter School in the Lower School, grades five and six. For many students, BCCS is a very new kind of school. In addition to new structures and systems, there are extremely high academic and behavioral expectations with accompanying incentives and consequences, merits and demerits, uniforms, and lots of homework. Lower school teachers spend time orienting students to the new expectations of BCCS, helping them to stay organized and on top of their assignments, and showing them that learning and achieving can be fun!
The instructional program in the Lower School centers on a commitment to a rigorous college preparatory curriculum combined with additional time on learning and close, individualized instruction.
