The Newman School's motto, "Heart Speaks to Heart", is woven through all areas of school life. Relationships are at the core of who we are. Students develop through inquisitive academic exploration and apply critical and creative thinking skills to resolve complex problems and contribute to our community.

Founded in 1945 and located on Marlborough Street, in the heart of Boston's extraordinary Back Bay neighborhood, The Newman School serves students from grades 7-12 who come from the city of Boston, numerous surrounding towns, and 38 countries.

Our small community nestled in a larger city environment offers students a chance to be both known and independent. We are committed to providing an IB global education, recognized by universities around the world for its depth and rigor. Our extraordinary faculty have deep international and independent school experience, and students are engaged in individualized learning with support and challenge.

The Newman School students participate in activities, arts, and sports at school and throughout Boston, pursuing their passions in the "education city." Sports offered include crew, sailing, soccer, cross country, basketball, volleyball, and tennis.

Extracurricular clubs and enrichment activities include: AMC Math, Model United Nations, Mock Trial, robotics, computer science, NASA, environmental, chess, musical performance, Junior Achievement, film & media, art, and a broad range of service opportunities. Partnerships with the Boston Public Library, Greater Boston YMCA, Community Rowing Club and Community Boating enrich our students' experience.

Our unique boarding program, around the corner from the school, gives students a full boarding experience, providing a cozy home in the heart of the city. Students are surrounded by art, innovation, culture, and recreation. Our location is a short walk to the Boston Public Library, Symphony Hall, The Boston Ballet, The Museum of Fine Arts, and many colleges and universities – including Harvard, Boston College, Northeastern University, Boston University, and MIT - for which Boston is world-renowned.
