Welcome to the Roger Clap Elementary School! We are excited to welcome you and your family to our school community.
At the Roger Clap Elementary School, excellence is the standard. Our school is determined to provide all of our students with an equal opportunity to learn. Our school is made up of a diverse group of students and staff members that are hard working members of the Boston community.

Dear Roger Clap Families,
The Roger Clap Elementary is a small, full inclusion K0-Grade 6 school in Dorchester. As a single strand school, each classroom has 1 teacher, 1 paraprofessional, and a shared learning specialist who collectively serve all learners. Together the school works to build an anti-racist and inclusive school that promotes restorative justice practices, rigorous academic experiences that honor the multiple identities of learners, and strong home-school partnerships. Through partnerships, all students receive music, art, physical education, and science. Students, staff, and families build the Roger Clap Wolf PACK - P-perseverance, A-advocacy, C-collaboration, and K-kindness.
Regardless of his or her socio-economic, linguistic and academic history, each student is educated to the highest level through a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum. We also educate students to become knowledgeable of, civically engaged in, and involved in the service of their school, the local community, and the global community. We do this not just through our curriculum, but by field trips, community service, and our bi-weekly Town Hall Meetings with inspirational members of the local community.
