Community Giving Report 2020–2021

Commonwealth School’s mission is to educate young people from diverse backgrounds to become knowledgeable, thoughtful, and creative adults, capable of careful analysis, fruitful cooperation, responsible leadership, and deep commitment. Donations to The Commonwealth Fund help us work to fulfill this mission and provide opportunities to our students, now and in the future. 

Reflections from the Class of 2021

Though they took dramatically different paths through Commonwealth, these three recent alumni/ae agree: their four years here were transformative.

Sol Gutiérrez-Lara '21

“Over these past four years at Commonwealth I have emerged from my timid shell and now have the confidence to say I don’t think I’ll ever retreat back inside.” In her graduation speech, Sol Gutiérrez-Lara '21 addressed the importance of speaking up, even—and especially—when it feels hardest.

Anirudh-Nistala

Anirudh Nistala '21

“I entered Commonwealth with a vague promise of a 'tight-knit community.' But it was at this moment that I would start to realize what that phrase would actually mean to me." Moments of "contact" and connection, from playing word games on walks to practicing lines backstage to stealing away during Hancock, come alive in Aniridh Nistala's senior speech.

Markus-Tran

Markus Tran '21

"Sometime over the course of our four years, we realize that some of us came in with more math, or science, or history knowledge, but that doesn’t make anyone an expert at navigating Commonwealth.... At the end of the day, we all stand on the mountaintop together, helping each other decipher the great unknown."

Faculty Scholarship

Through the Hughes/Wharton Fund for Teachers, Commonwealth faculty can pursue their academic passions, access fulfilling professional development opportunities, and have the latitude to create new courses and reinvigorate existing ones. Here, three teachers share the impact of their summer, 2021 Hughes/Wharton-funded projects.

Al Letarte, Axiomatic Set Theory

For math teacher Al Letarte, poring over “the beautifully concise formal language” that animates Axiomatic Set Theory made for enormous summer fun. (Who needs the beach?) Through Commonwealth’s new Axiomatic Set Theory course, he gives students a chance to explore concepts usually reserved for college math majors, from the syntax and semantics of first-order languages to the very nature of mathematical truth.

Emma Sundberg, the Neuroscience of Learning

Commonwealth students come from a striking variety of backgrounds: other independent schools, homeschooling, and public schools across the Greater Boston area. And because the school strives to meet every student where they are, providing malleable introductory material helps usher in each new class of learners. Such was the impetus for Emma Sundberg’s recent updates to her Biology 1 class.

Melissa-Glenn-Haber

Melissa Glenn Haber '87, Reinvigorating U.S. History Courses

History teacher and alumna Melissa Glenn Haber ’87 reflects on her most recent Hughes/Wharton project, a summer spent exploring ways of decoupling reading and writing skills, as well as adding more diverse voices to Commonwealth’s history curriculum.

Financial Highlights

Revenue from tuition supports a portion of the cost of a Commonwealth education. The Commonwealth Fund and earnings from the school’s endowment make up the difference.

Expenses

Revenue

Commonwealth concluded fiscal year 2020–2021 with a net operating surplus of $63,211. Our endowment grew at an above average rate due to unusually positive market performance, and we saved significantly when we switched our biweekly COVID-19 testing from individual to pooled tests.

  


 

By the Numbers

In the 2020–2021 fiscal year, 633 alumni/ae, parents, grandparents, and friends contributed $1,133,644 to The Commonwealth Fund.
