Trotter Elementary School
In the last three years we have had the opportunity to select our entire teaching staff and as a result we have a dynamic, professional and deeply passionate teaching force -- and now are one of just two schools in Boston to go from Level 4 (Turnaround) status all the way to Level 1 (the highest rating possible)!. We have also received other flexibilities, such as increased funding and a longer school day, that enable us to help all students reach proficiency. The Trotter School is a community where all children are becoming proficient learners who understand that effective effort leads to success. All members of the Trotter School- children and adults- strive to act with kindness and respect. We are focused on creating a peaceful school climate with an emphasis on academic rigor. Students are engaged in reading, writing, math and science as well as art, music, computers and drama. We value our families and our Family and Community Outreach Coordinator supports the school in building relationships between home and school.
