Dear Roxbury Prep families,
Happy New Year! Can you believe we are already halfway through the school year? The past two quarters have been nothing short of amazing. Our scholars have worked diligently, our teachers have been relentlessly committed to the success of their students, and you as families have fully supported our schools and overall student learning. We are in this together!

We appreciate our families, and your voice is important to us. Below you will find a video that highlights the many components that make Roxbury Prep great! Please watch the video to see our families and teachers share testimonies about what it is like to be a part of the Roxbury Prep family.
