Beyond Academics

At Paul Cuffee School, we believe in educating students for life. This means that in addition to rigorous academics, we offer a range of programs and activities designed to enrich students’ civic knowledge, foster cooperation, and support their physical and social well-being.

Programs outside of the core curriculum include health services and education as well as a wide range of enrichment programs, including elective study areas, daily after-school supervision, and a variety of clubs and sports.

PCS families play an integral role in their children’s education. We work in partnership with parents and others to ensure that each student’s needs are met. Family members can take advantage of our library and other resources and are encouraged to serve in formal and informal leadership roles at the school, including through the Parent Caregiver Teacher Association.
