In the Spotlight

“Our mission here at the Boyce Thompson School is to create a safe and supportive learning environment where students become lifelong learners”   

William Boyce Thompson School Mission Statement 


While students have come to live by this idea, it doesn’t stop there.  These commitments and actions are modeled from the top down. 

Three years ago, under the guidance of  Bank Street College, Boyce Thompson put into effect a Professional Learning Community.  As a team, we identified and implemented a “Problem of Practice” :

To increase students mathematical ability to critically think and solve real world problems.

Through hard work and dedication, Boyce Thompson is on the road to success.   As of this school year we are now a “School in Good Standing!” We are extremely proud and excited of this accomplishment, but it is only the beginning.  The best is yet to come!  This year we will extend our focus to include the integration of all content areas.
