Boston Teachers Union School Overview
The Boston Teachers Union School mission is to educate scholars to high standards and help them reach their educational potential and become capable, caring, engaged citizens. We aim to provide all scholars with a rigorous and wide-ranging liberal arts education in an inclusive, democratic, nurturing and safe environment that welcomes families and capitalizes on the expertise of excellent teachers.
As part of a rigorous liberal arts experience, the Union School currently offers English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Music, Art and Spanish as a World language to every scholar. Ongoing scholar assessment, intervention and academic support ensures achievement for each and every scholar. Our school is committed to meeting each child where he or she is and moving them forward, so an ability to differentiate and scaffold curricula and instruction is essential.
The BTU School is a teacher-run school with two teacher-leaders and the faculty working together to make important decisions regarding the school. We believe that unleashing the potential of teachers is the best way to provide a wide-ranging, high-quality education to all of our scholars. Collaboratively, the faculty develops an innovative and rigorous professional growth program for teachers and associate teachers, including a professional development and evaluation program.
The BTU School is unique in its emphasis on involving the whole family, providing educational opportunities and other social and related services for scholars and their family members. The school has a longer school day, and involves outside agencies with a long-term goal of providing more services, including health and social services.
Simmons College Partnership
The professional development partnership with Simmons provides opportunities for teachers from both the school and the college to engage in self-reflective practice. Social work, graduate health studies and library science degree candidates will also be involved with the BTU scholars and the school community. The partnership will serve as an opportunity to provide a school environment that enhances scholar learning, teacher learning, and effective practice.
