Advent School

The Advent School is located in the Beacon Hill neighborhood. It is attended by children from ECC to 6th Grade from all over Boston. Since 1961, this small school has stayed true to its founding vision: an urban school whose community reflects the diversity of Boston; a forward-thinking curriculum that inspires and engages a child’s passion for learning; a commitment to social justice; and a culture of collaboration where every child has the confidence to take action in a connected world.
With their Spanish teacher, Maria Acuña who holds a Master in Education and a degree in Graphic Design, students learn Spanish by creating lots of artwork. Ms. Acuña tries to incorporate environmental awareness with every project reusing materials. Every art project relates to a unit students are learning about.
The current displays are:
“Tiempo de Suéteres” ( Sweater Weather) was created by First Graders when learning about clothing. They worked on reused grocery shopping bags.
“Ajolotes” ( Axolotls) was created by Fifth Graders for their describing animals unit while step by step directions were given in Spanish.
