Village School enrolls 290 students from transitional kindergarten through sixth grade. Our strong and close-knit community, representing over 30 different Zip Codes, shares a commitment to nurturing childhoods of wonder, joy, and challenge.
The academic program at Village is thoughtfully and intentionally designed to meet students where they are, to spark their curiosity, to push them out of their comfort zones, to inspire them, and, most importantly, to bring joy.
Children thrive on connections. At Village, those connections are evident between classmates, between grade levels, and between students and teaches. Everyone at Village is known and valued for who they are.
“As I am about to enter the Upper School at Marlborough, I reflect upon the years leading up to this point and I can’t help but smile at the great fondness I have for my time at Village School. The foundation that Village has built for me has allowed me to flourish and grow into the person I have become, strong and independent with fiercely loyal roots grounding me always.
