Description:

At Atrium, we are committed to providing children a balanced education that cultivates creativity, confidence, and compassion. As a small school, we are able to offer true individualized attention, and provide for each child –
and family – the gift of being known by an entire community.

Because early educational experiences establish life-long patterns, we nurture each child’s confidence in his or her own ideas and abilities; encourage creativity, responsibility, and independent thinking; and teach and practice skills required for collaborative work.

We are a progressive elementary school located in Watertown (on the Cambridge line) in an award-winning "green" building. Our suburban neighborhood location balances safety and intimacy with the expansive possibilities of an urban campus. All students (pre-K through 6th) have Spanish, library, art studio, and music, which is taught through the Music+Music Integration program, a curriculum developed in collaboration with the New England Conservatory.
