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

Birches School is an independent, co-educational elementary school offering vigorous, interdisciplinary academics within a mindful, nurturing environment. Our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) approach centers on nature-based thematic units designed to cultivate academic and social development and to encourage students' curiosity, creativity, self-reliance, and empathy.

Birches uses the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) as the floor, but there is no ceiling. Skilled and responsive teachers weave 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 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 Kindergarten through Fifth Grade for the 2015-2016 school year. Grade Six will be added during the school year 2016-2017. To reach Birches, please use our "Contact Us" web page or call us at 781-728-5438.

Birches has been accepted as a Candidate for membership in AISNE (Association of Independent Schools in New England).
