  • Welcome to South Shore Charter Public School!

    The mission and educational philosophy of SSCPS is to inspire students to achieve. Fundamental to the mission is an innovative educational structure that incorporates academic courses with the exploration of applications outside the scope of a typical school. The program of studies augments a traditional curriculum aligned with the Massachusetts Frameworks with learning through experience in Projects and Workshops. Projects and Workshops, predominantly within the fields of environmental science, performing arts, visual arts, communication, and technology, are an essential part of the school’s mission. Projects and Workshops enable students and faculty to work together, follow their passions, and establish and accomplish goals that serve community needs.
    One of the founding principles of the school is to foster a close working relationship among parents, students, and teachers. As part of that partnership, teachers schedule annual meetings for each student with families. In grades K-8 these are goal setting meetings that take place in the fall. At the high school level these meetings are focused on the college entrance process. At SSCPS students learn how to integrate their learning into the life of the community. All K-12 students are required to complete community service requirements. Students at all grade levels are provided with opportunities to create, produce, and defend their work, collaborate in teams, and serve as student leaders. Students become involved in the community beyond the school walls and learn about the importance of teamwork, communication, service, and organization. In addition, each Level starting in third grade regularly holds “town meetings” led by student-elected leaders and a high school student is a voting member of the Board of Trustees.
