The Coolidge Corner School serves the vibrant Coolidge Corner neighborhood and is the largest of Brookline’s K to 8 schools, with a population of 816 students. It enjoys an international reputation: historically, it is the public school that President John F. Kennedy attended; academically, it welcomes students from all over the world, and socially, it reflects and respects human diversity. Coolidge Corner School 3rd graders honor the memory and legacy of John F. Kennedy by engaging in a four-week study in collaboration with the JFK National Historic Site which culminates each year with students reading essays and poems about what JFK means to them.
ACADEMIC—We work hard so we can become smarter. We take risks as learners. We communicate effectively: orally, in writing, and through technology.
COMMUNITY—We make sure everyone feels physically, emotionally and intellectually safe. We give and receive respect. We have compassion for one another. We contribute to our school, our community, and to our world. We establish and maintain healthy friendships.
WHOLE PERSON—We are confident in our abilities. We love to learn and strive to become lifelong learners.
The system-wide programs offered at Coolidge Corner School are the English Language Learner program with a high concentration of Hebrew speakers, and a K through 8 Therapeutic Learning Center for students who need intensive social and emotional supports.
