Welcome to Birches School at 14 Bedford Road in Lincoln, Massachusetts.

Located just outside Boston, MA, Birches School is a co-educational, independent elementary school offering vigorous, interdisciplinary academics within a nurturing environment of multi-aged classes. The nature-based, community-based curriculum is designed to meet each child's individual needs and perspectives. The school encourages students' curiosity, self-reliance, resourcefulness, and empathy.



Birches uses the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) as the floor, but there is no ceiling. Children move forward academically as quickly as they are comfortable and able. Birches weaves each child's questions into the curriculum. Students work individually or in groups depending on the nature of the inquiry-based project and according to their own abilities.

Located on the edge of conservation land in the center of Lincoln, a woodland walk away from the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Birches affords close, daily contact with nature. Students come to understand the world as an interconnected place through STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) and literacy, including Spanish literacy. They learn about their responsibilities to the natural world and to their fellow beings.

A non-profit, non-sectarian school, Birches seeks a diverse student body. We have enrolled Kindergarten through Fourth Graders for the 2014-2015 school year. Grades Five and Six will be added in subsequent years. To reach Birches, please use our "Contact Us" web page or call us at 781-728-5438.
