Mattahunt Elementary School

The Mattahunt School is organized for students’ success. We offer strategic interventions that are driven by data collected every 6 weeks after instruction.

To support our positive culture and climate, our entire school has a robust behavior management system that allows students to track behaviors and ‘cash in’ positive outcomes at our school store; we’ve had educators from outside the country come to visit to learn more about this initiative.

Read Boston and Barnes & Noble support our literacy efforts by providing reading materials and activities. Our MBA program meets on Saturdays for 4th and 5th grade boys. We have a special partnership with City Year to provide support for our students in grades 3-5.
