You have a few things to consider now. Does the thought of joining a friendly group of enthusiastic scholars appeal to you? Are you eager to be challenged by teachers who are as warm and supportive as they are passionate academics? Do you want to play—in the band, on the field, or just a game chess? Would you like to commute to and from Boston’s Back Bay and have the city right outside your door? Will you join (or lead) the Math Team, Gay-Straight Alliance, Debate Team, Robotics, or Evil Genius Club? Are you ready to learn what you love and love what you learn?
 
Think about what you might accomplish here. And take the next step to join us.

I was first interested in the school by the small class sizes and the very rigorous environment. Visiting and having a virtual class was what drew me in. I'm very happy about making the choice to come [to Commonwealth]. The classes are intriguing, to say the least. There is difficulty but nothing I can’t handle. And the opportunities, such as Project Week, are unique, and they allow us to develop our own interests.
