Hurley in the Community

The Hurley is proud to be a thriving neighborhood school actively supported by the South End community. The school carefully selects partners that enhance the curriculum and meet its high academic standards.

Neighborhood Partners

Since 2003, the Neighborhood Parents for the Hurley School (NPHS) has been our primary funding partner, working closely with the school to supplement its academic and artistic programming and renovate its facilities. With the goal of making the Hurley the best K–8 school in the city and a model for an integrated urban education, NPHS organizes annual fundraisers, writes grants, and solicits private donations.

The surrounding Worcester Street neighborhood and South End community have also played an important role in our history. In the late 1990s, Worcester Street residents and the Hurley Blocks Neighborhood Association worked with the school to spearhead a $500,000 fundraising effort to improve the Hurley grounds. With funding and support from the Browne Fund, the Boston Schoolyard Initiative, the Boston Parks Department, City Year, the South End Land Trust, Boston Cares, area businesses and universities, and scores of South End neighbors like West Concord Street resident and Boston Pops conductor Keith Lockhart, the school received a new playground, outdoor plaza, amphitheater, and landscaped garden.

Program Partners

We are also greatful to count among our supporters a wide range of local foundations, businesses, and organizations that provide enrichment programming and support for Hurley students and teachers. These include:
