Fenway High School
Fenway is an outstanding high school with more than 30 years of experience educating Boston youth. We are proud of our national reputation and many awards for innovation and excellence. Our students and faculty teach and learn together in a diverse, respectful community.
Founded in 1983, Fenway became one of Boston’s six original pilot schools in 1994. We do not have an academic admission requirement. Our proven success is largely due to our established set of teaching practices and school structures based on three core principles:
