About Our School
The Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School was founded on the belief that excellent schools are a crucial part of strong, vibrant urban communities. Our school is a Horace Mann “in-district” charter school, part of the Boston Public Schools. We opened our doors in 2012, and we now serve students in grades K1 - 4. Next year, our school will grow to serve 325 students in grades K1-5.
Founded by BPE and the Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative, the Dudley Street School works with local partners to ensure all children in the Dudley neighborhood have access to a high-quality education.
