About Our School

Patrick Murphy, Superintendent

Jen Brotherton, Principal

Located on a peninsula eight miles north of Olympia, Boston Harbor Elementary School draws its Boston Harbor schoolstudent population from a rural community bordered by the waters of Puget Sound and Henderson Inlet.

The first school building in the Boston Harbor area, originally a summer destination for local residents and vacationers, was built in 1938 as a Work Progress Administration Project during the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The current school facility, constructed in 1991, houses students in kindergarten through fifth grade.

The Boston Harbor school community takes pride in its traditions for high parental involvement, an experienced and caring instructional staff and commitment to student achievement. Our instructional efforts are focused on school-wide PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) and meeting student's individual academic needs with both intervention and extension opportunities.

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)

MAP is a district assessment that measures a student's developing skills through a series of questions that adapt to the child’s level of learning. Research on MAP indicates the results are highly accurate. The results help teachers measure growth and determine whether a student may need more support or more challenge.
 

Due to pandemic-related school closures, 2019-20 MAP assessment data is not available.
