Lilla G. Frederick Pilot Middle School
Connecting, Learning, Achieving! The mission of Frederick Pilot Middle School is to provide students with a rigorous academic experience while striving to serve the whole child — mind, body, and spirit. Named after the late Lilla G. Frederick, a community activist from the Grove Hall community in Boston, we provide students with access and exposure through community partnership and civic engagement.
In each of our four academies, we have a student support specialist, an academy leader, a learning coach, staff coordinators, and a group of teachers who will work with each family and child to create a plan that supports success. We believe that all students can accomplish high-quality work and that their futures depend upon their being successful.
