the Hurley

Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School

The Hurley is a Spanish-English language immersion K-8 Boston public school in the South End. Our school serves a racially-, ethnically-, and economically-diverse student population. Seventy-three percent of our students live in high poverty.”

Less than a decade ago, the Hurley was an “underperforming” school. Then, a group of dedicated parents — Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School (NPHS) — joined together with the school’s principal to identify ways that the larger school community might support the school’s mission. The NPHS raised funds to supplement the school’s academic curriculum, enrichment programming, tutoring and anti-bullying programs, and to renovate the school facilities. With the support of the NPHS, our fine administration, faculty, staff and student body have transformed the Hurley into a MCAS Tier I School and a model of integrated urban education.

Because of the increasing gap between the cost of education and the funds provided to the Hurley by the Boston Public School District, the Hurley relies on philanthropy to support each of its 350 students. Since its inception, the NPHS has created a library for the school, hired a librarian, funded reading intervention, hired a science specialist and made other important improvements to the school’s programming and facilities. With your support, we can continue to help our students achieve academic excellence. Please donate or volunteer now.
