A successful academic experience for every child.

We are a Boston Public School and an in-district, Horace Mann charter school offering an exceptional education in the Dudley neighborhood of Roxbury.

Founded in 2012 by BPE, in partnership with Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative, we serve 325 students in grades K1-5.

We form a PreK-12 neighborhood pathway with Dearborn STEM Academy.

Dudley Street School is designed to ensure a successful academic experience for every child, with an innovative school model that puts personalized student learning at the center of teaching.  We graduate resilient, hard-working scholars who are proficient readers, writers, problem solvers, and thinkers and we have organized our school to ensure each individual student reaches these goals.  Every graduate of our school will be on a path to college and career success.

We are a BPE Teaching Academy in which residents from Boston Teacher Residency partner with experienced teachers to deliver ambitious instruction in each classroom. Teachers have opportunities to observe one another’s work, receive feedback on their teaching, engage in cycles of inquiry, analyze data, reflect on practice, support and push each other to grow.

  • Dudley Street School forms a PreK-12 neighborhood pathway with Dearborn STEM Academy, which moved to a brand new state-of-the-art STEM facility in 2018.
