About Our School

Dudley Street LogoThe Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School was founded with 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 serving students in grades K1, K2, and first grade. In 2013, we expanded to include second grade; in future years, 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 is working with local partners to ensure all children in the Dudley neighborhood have access to a seamless, high-quality education.

Making it Happen

"Making it Happen," a new BPE publication, is a look back at the first year of the Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School.  It's no small thing to open a new school, and BPE created this booklet as a way to capture the story and capture the imaginations of potential students, families, and partners!
