Mattahunt Elementary School

  • We foster a love of learning and a sense of responsibility in our students to position them to realize their immense potential. We do this by providing rigorous and meaningful learning experiences- experiences that are grounded in students’ interests, contexts, and cultures and in the environment and community that surrounds and girds our school. The Mattahunt School is a Boston Community Hub School. 

    Our team of adults matches our students’ appetites for learning to grow and develop, to respond and adapt, and to support and encourage. This supportive team includes not only staff, but members of our diverse community of families, neighbors, and partners. Everyone is learning each and every day so that we may create innovative approaches to achieving our goals.

    Our Vision

    Our children are the leaders of tomorrow, so we empower them to have opportunities to lead today. Our children are thinkers who feel responsible for one another and make good choices for themselves and for the communities.

    Our work in Mattapan will become a virtuous cycle. We will leverage the skills, knowledge, and resources of today’s community to develop graduates who are ready to be contributing members of the Boston community.
