Description

The Cambridge School of Weston is day and boarding school for grades 9-12. Founded in 1886, our progressive pedagogy is rooted in the student-centered philosophy of John Dewey and develops students’ abilities to explore with curiosity, self-awareness, discipline, open-mindedness, and a sense of personal responsibility. Using primary resources and multiple perspectives, our curriculum emphasizes a commitment to human rights and social justice. Purposeful classroom experiences and assessments allow students to develop and practice independent thinking, critical analysis, imaginative problem-solving, productive collaboration, and constructive risk-taking. We value creative process, and challenge students to make their work personally meaningful, to develop their unique talents, and to identify ways to bring their distinctive skills and perspectives to what the world will ask of them.
