Boston Latin School

Located in the historic city of Boston, the renowned Boston Latin School is the oldest public school in America. Founded in 1635, this prestigious institution has a rich history and continues to be an important part of Boston's cultural fabric.


History of Boston Latin School

The school was established when the Puritans were settling in the New World, and it served as a place for educating the children of these settlers. Initially named "The Latin School," it was later renamed Boston Latin School in 1786.

The Oldest Public School in America

Boston Latin School, or BLS for short, was the first public school in the United States. It was founded by Puritan settlers who strongly believed in educating their children to read and interpret the Bible. Initially, the school only admitted boys, but in 1972 it became co-educational.

A Prestigious Education

From its inception, Boston Latin School has maintained a high standard of education. The school has produced many notable alumni, including several presidents of the United States. Other famous graduates include John Hancock, William Hooper, inventor Benjamin Franklin, and musician Leonard Bernstein
