Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School is now a Tier 1 school as measured by the Boston Public Schools School Quality Framework (SQF) in 2023-2024. This framework assesses schools in five areas: Student Performance, Teaching and Learning, Family, Community and Culture, Leadership and Collaboration, and Student Access and Opportunities. Each school receives a score from 0 to 100. Tier 1 schools received the highest scores (65-100).

Dudley Street School has moved from a Tier 4 to a Tier 1 school in just four years due to its robust curriculum and student growth (how much a student progresses academically each year), whole-child approach to learning, community roots, outstanding leadership, and committed teaching staff.

The school’s mission is to provide a world-class education for all students, preparing them for long-term academic success and responsible civic engagement; to serve as a driver of human and social capital development, preparing outstanding new teachers to drive excellent student outcomes throughout Boston, and to serve as a partner in the catalyzing improvement of all schools in the Dudley area.
