ATTENTION!

First public school in Boston

Come to the first public school on April 23rd, 1635 in Boston, Massachusetts

Come to the first public school in Boston! Unlike your average school, the Boston Latin school teaches Latin and Greek, and world studies. It was founded by Reverend John Cotton, and based off The Free Grammar school of England. This school was publicly funded by the city. The first classes will be taught in Philemon Pormort's house. Please do not be tardy, or face 3 stokes of the cane.

As you can see, this house is festive, but not overdone. White bricks line the sides. The door is pure, firm, wood. Trees give it a natural look. This building can withstand a small fire, unlike your normal schoolhouse. It also has a basement to store desks.
This building was made with mud, brick, and rocks.
