NESE - The New England School of English

36 John F. Kennedy St, Cambridge, MA 02138

NESE’s unique approach is based on educational research, the result of an analysis that NESE’s founder (and current president) conducted while completing her graduate degree at Harvard University. Her examination of effective school and classroom environments allowed her to create NESE, a school that is guided by its commitment to excellence in the classroom, its respect for all peoples, its belief in each student’s ability to succeed, and its recognition that each student’s specific needs and goals are critical to his success.
