Era la prima scuola pubblica di Boston, completamente gratuita. Solo per ragazzo fino al 1972. Tra i suoi studenti ricordiamo Franklin. Un mosaico ricorda il posto in cui la scuola stava. more »It was the first public school in Boston, completely free. Only for boy until 1972. His students include Franklin. A mosaic reminds the place where the school was.
This is a school for the emotionless and robotic. I recommend that someone who is prepared to go through trauma go to this school. Benjamin Franklin, one of the most famous students dropped out for a reason. Their educational philosophy, if they have one is: "It was good enough for your grandfather, so shut up." Their orchestra program is the only good thing about the school.
When I get married and have kids, I will sure send them to study at this school. Knowledge of the Classics and Hebrew spirituality are the backbones to have a virtuous life and mind !
