Paul A. Dever Elementary School
The Paul A. Dever Elementary School (Pre-K to grade 5 in the Boston Public School system) serves families from diverse cultural, economic, and linguistic backgrounds. With talented and committed teachers and leaders, individualized supports to meet students’ diverse learning needs, a supportive and caring learning environment, and a culture of high expectations for academic excellence, we ensure all students are prepared to succeed in college, careers, and beyond.
The Keys of Inspiration and the accompanying Lang Lang Piano Lab have come along at a most opportune time for our school; we recently launched a Boston Public School district-wide arts-integration initiative to support student learning across all grade levels, and throughout all subject/content areas. And while we believe that the study of music is in and of itself a worthwhile endeavor, we also know that the study of music, specifically a study of the piano, augments our students’ abilities in other academic areas as well, evinced in our student successes in and out of the Lang Lang Piano Lab.
We look forward to having the lab support both the emotional outlet needs, and the academic successes, for our students for many, many generations of Dever Dolphins to come!
