Morse School (PK-5)

Morse Collage

“We are one heart, we are one hand, we are children and people of many different lands.
We’re a neighborhood filled with hope and pride, a belief in walking side by side.”
- Morse School Song

The Morse School strives to provide all children with a sense of belonging and access to the academic, social and emotional resources they need to attain their full potential and to become successful, independent and culturally-proficient members of our community and our world.

The school serves families from every Cambridge neighborhood and from over 30 different countries. Its proximity to the Charles River, to local universities, and to Boston’s cultural and historical landmarks allows teachers to enhance learning through community partnerships and field trips. The school’s beautiful garden and playground areas provide engaging spaces for outdoor learning and play.

Morse School staff nurture children’s intellectual curiosity, academic skills, and artistic expression, as well as their healthy social and emotional growth. They approach positive engagement and respectful behavior as skills that can be taught and work as a community to help students develop a respect for self and others, a sense of civic responsibility and an appreciation for people with diverse origins, identities, beliefs and learning styles. The school’s core values are: Be Inclusive, Be Kind, Be Responsible and Be an Active Learner.

The Morse School community is committed to understanding and addressing racism and racial bias, hearing and elevating underrepresented voices and striving to achieve an equitable and just educational experience for all students.
