  • Welcome TO Boston Higashi School!

    Our Mission is to help children and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder learn to reach their full potential through the methodology of Daily Life Therapy®. This unique educational philosophy developed by the late Dr. Kiyo Kitahara of Tokyo, Japan incorporates a broad and balanced curriculum, including academics, art, music, physical education, technology, and social education. Students take on challenges, learn to overcome obstacles, and gain confidence from their own success. This approach allows our students to develop a love for learning so they may fully enjoy their family, community, and all that life has to offer. As each student grows and learns, their personality and individual character matures, allowing them to benefit from, and most importantly, contribute to society as adults.

    Our campus is a 55-acre site of rolling hills, nature trails, playgrounds, a new pool and athletic complex, student housing and school buildings that form a dynamic space for exploration, growth and learning.

    The many activities during the Day and Residential Programs are designed to make full use of the site by all of the students. They garden in the greenhouse, jog around the school paths, and study science in the woods. It is truly a stimulating environment for the mind, body and spirit. Learn more about us...
