Family Partnerships

The Family Partnership Program provides a bridge between METCO (Boston) families and Scituate families by providing each child from Boston a consistent, caring presence in the school community as they endeavor to succeed in school.  Elementary students in the program participate in scheduled monthly early release day group playdates, which are a structured way to facilitate connection.

It has been shown that students who have been matched with partner families typically perform better academically and assimilate better on a social level, than those who do not.  The goal of the Family Partnership Program is to support the successful integration of Boston students into the school community so that they may benefit fully from available academic and social opportunities.  Above all, Family Partnerships provide a feeling of security for METCO students by giving them a sense of belonging to the community where they spend the majority of their day.
