Charlestown High School (CHS) is an innovative high school in Boston that serves almost 1,000 students from across the city. Located in the historic neighborhood of Charlestown along the MBTA Orange Line, CHS is organized into 6 Small Learning Communities, each of which is designed for a specific population of students.

We prepare all our students for future success in college, careers, and life beyond school. With our unique programming, close partnership with nearby Bunker Hill Community College, and extensive range of extracurricular activities--including jobs, academic tutoring, performing arts clubs, and competitive sports teams--we provide all students with the opportunity to pursue their own interests and passions as they achieve success.
