THE LAB SCHOOL AT NEWTON

NORTH HIGH SCHOOL


The Plowshares program operating at Newton North High School was established in September of 1987 at the invitation of the School Committee and Technical Vocation Department of Newton North High School. It is a model program and example of a successful public/private partnership between

 

Newton Public Schools and Plowshares Childcare Program, Inc. This location serves as a lab school for training high school students majoring in Early Childhood Education. Lab students are under the supervision of a high school teacher as well as Plowshares' staff. Lab students study child growth and development theories and learn practical methods of classroom implementation. Although the lab students are not included in our teacher:child ratio, their hands-on assistance often provides very specialized and valuable one-on-one attention for our children.  Plowshares was one of the first programs in the state and nation to be accredited by NAEYC (The National Association for the Educaction of Young Children) and has applied for a four star **** QRIS standing with the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care.
