The Alternative School for Math & Science, a diverse community of students, teachers and parents, provides an academically challenging and supportive learning environment uniquely designed for ten to fourteen year olds. The School’s innovative curriculum, atmosphere of trust and respect, and commitment to life-long learning enable the positive development of the whole child. Every aspect of school life is intended to help students learn tolerance, build integrity and character, and become responsible members of the broader community.
In 2003 a steering committee of parents, educators, and community members came together to graft a mission statement for the school. The motivation was not just academic excellence, but creating a learning environment where kids valued each other, valued community service, and valued diversity of thought.
