About Us

Neighborhood House Charter School was founded over 20 years ago with a mandate to both provide a better education for Boston’s low-income families and to incubate the best in teaching and learning practices. Serving over 600 children from Dorchester and surrounding neighborhoods, we have become one of the most sought-after public schools in the City. The 70 percent low-income, 80 percent minority families we serve truly reflect the diversity of Boston. In keeping with our commitment to provide a better education option for Boston schoolchildren, in the fall of 2017 we opened a Neighborhood House Charter School high school beginning with a ninth grade class, which will expand over the next several years. We are uniquely positioned to understand the challenges facing Boston students as they move into high school, and we are both honored and excited to be able to offer a high school that will address these challenges and give families a new, distinctive option.
