5th Grade Alex and Krissh Naomi and Emily 5th Grade Color Day Read Across America - Hat Day Love and Kindness 2 Love and Kindness Week Dorchester


At Dorchester Elementary School, we cultivate learners who are passionate about exploration, comfortable with challenges, and willing to persevere to become independent thinkers. Students in Pre-K through fifth grade take part in a variety of opportunities to develop the creativity, communication, and critical thinking skills they need to thrive as members of their community. Our students, families, and teachers work together so that the children of Dorchester can build their foundational academic skills while focusing on their social and emotional growth as well. We welcome you to our website and our learning community.
