Vassal Lane Upper School serves students in grades 6-8 who previously attended the Haggerty, Graham & Parks, and Tobin Montessori Schools.

Upper School Scholars are provided with learning experiences that are developmentally responsive, challenging, inclusive, and supportive.With a combined enrollment of about 260, our school offers students a sense of close community while providing a large enough cohort and teaching staff to offer rich programming.

Students enjoy out-of-school-time options made possible through a shared daily schedule, 8:55AM to 2:55PM, for all schools in the Cambridge Public Schools Upper School Network.

Vision Statement
The Vassal Lane Upper School is a place where everyone belongs. We envision our students as scholars and believe in the power of perseverance. We become better together.

Mission Statement
All students, teachers, families, and administrators are active members of the VLUS community, engaging in their own learning and development. We are committed to collaboration and creating environments in which all students learn at high levels. We are mindful of societal inequities and work to challenge injustice. We strive to promote inquiry, reflection, critical thinking, creative expression, resilience, civic engagement, and lifelong learning.
