Condon, James F. K-8 School

The Condon K-8 School is an innovative school serving students who reflect the rich diversity of Boston. Our mission is to help all students acquire the skills, knowledge, and habits they need to reach proficiency and to succeed in high school, college, and a life of active citizenship in the neighborhoods of Boston and beyond. 

We aim to achieve this mission through rigorous academic programs which are differentiated for a range of learners, a comprehensive approach to the social-emotional needs of children, and enriching opportunities to engage in music, art, dance and swim.

Our teachers work collaboratively to plan and deliver effective instruction that is reflective of assessment data, the Common Core Standards, and divergent student needs.  An updated outdoor classroom, playground, before and after school programs and a bullying prevention program are just some of the offerings that enhance a safe and welcoming environment for all students and families.

We also work closely with partners to like Edvestors, City Year, The Achievement Network, Vertex, Reebok, Museum of Fine Arts, Cabot Corporation, Read to a Child, Harvard Civics Program, Boston Cares, and Cabot Corporation.

We will also be expanding to include grade 7 in September 2016 and grade 8 in September 2017.
