Driven by a mission of academic excellence, community, and diversity, CHS prides itself on providing a rigorous academic program within a warm and supportive environment. Our educational philosophy is a key product of that mission—one that is deeply rooted in a balanced approach to learning, a desire to educate and support the whole child, and a fundamental understanding of sound, developmental practice. Dedicated and talented teachers create a learning environment that not only facilitates the acquisition of knowledge and skills, but that promotes critical thinking, problem-solving, and a genuine love of learning.
CHS has earned a national reputation as an inclusive institution responsive to the needs of a highly diverse community. We have students, staff, and faculty from over 30 communities in the Greater Boston area. The school strives to acknowledge the numerous differences in our families’ backgrounds while actively celebrating our common commitments to equity and social justice.
