At Nashoba Brooks we seek to personalize the next school placement process for each family. The work of guiding decisions about next schools follows this philosophy: to help families discover places that are the best possible matches for each student.
Third Grade Next School Placement (Boys)
During the beginning of the Third Grade, the Lower School Head works with parents to assist them and their sons with the transition to their next school, whether public or independent. Approximately 90% of graduating boys enroll at nearby Fenn School, an independent school for boys, Grades 4 through 9. Families also choose from a variety of options that include local public schools and other independent schools.
