On behalf of the Tower School community, let me welcome you to our website. I encourage you to explore these pages, and I invite you to be in touch with me directly if I can be of assistance. As you browse, keep in mind that we are an intentional community. What does this mean?
As an intimate school, it means we are a place where each young person is known and needed. Because we understand our children and early adolescents individually, we create in them a bond with the school that fosters growth in all aspects of their development. We reach students where they are and inspire them to grow into their best selves.
As a school of purposeful educators, it means we blend what is most effective in traditional and progressive methods to instill academic skills, encourage intellectual curiosity, provide opportunity for creative expression and promote physical activity. At the end of the Tower School journey, students leave for expanding worlds (and top secondary schools) ready to be responsible, innovative thinkers and doers.
As a school with more than a hundred year history, ingrained in our North Shore community, it means we stand in a tradition rooted in timeless values. We are guided by the Tower Code, which fosters in all of us the ability to be secure in ourselves while respecting the dignity of others.
As a school that partners with families, it means we create a community where people feel connected to each other and to a vision for young students and their possibilities.
I invite you to arrange with our admissions office a visit to our Marblehead campus to experience Tower School in action.
