About the school

The PA Shaw just opened this school year and, for the 2014-2015 school year, has K0, K1 and K2 classrooms (3, 4 and 5 year olds). It is an Expeditionary Learning school that is part of Boston Public Schools under the leadership of Principal Akosua Osei-Bobie.

What makes the PA Shaw special:
  • Emphasis on hands-on learning
  • Interdisciplinary learning centers, such as the Block Area, Dramatization Center, and Art Studio
  • Instruction in small groups where teachers help students build basic skills
  • OWL and Building Blocks programs for K0 and K1: research-based curricula to give our youngest students a strong foundation in literacy, math, and social skills
  • Four extended themes during the school year in K2: Our Community, Animals and Habitats, Construction, and Our Earth.
  • Long-term projects that allow children to go deeply into what they are learning
  • Focus on guiding students to become good citizens and members of a community
