Parent Math Night at Fiske will be an opportunity for you to learn more about how we approach mathematics with a growth mindset and how to support your child to enjoy mathematics and embrace challenges -- parents will leave with resources and ideas to use immediately with your child at home.

METCO Family Friends Needed

We need volunteers to be “Family Friends” to METCO students.


There is a commitment of a few pre-scheduled play dates once a month throughout the

school year on Thursday afternoons from 12:15 - 3:00 p.m.

Our goal at Fiske is to assign the students to a Lexington Family Friend before the 1st

scheduled Family Friends Day.


This program means a great deal to the participating families (both Boston as well as

Lexington). The Fiske community has been a successful example of how to create an

environment where students from Boston and Lexington successfully come together to learn and grow. Help us to continue this effort by volunteering for the following school year METCO Family Friends Program.


If you are at all interested in participating in the program, please contact us.

We have Boston students in most grade levels!


Please contact us and ask any questions you may have in regards to the program.

Safe and Supportive Schools


The Lexington Public Schools strives to ensure that all students have full and equal access to all programs and services. Accordingly, the School Committee has amended its anti-discrimination policies to reflect the Act Relative to Gender Identity that went into effect in Massachusetts in July 2012. A key component of this law was the amendment of various Massachusetts statutes prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender identification. For further information regarding safe and supportive schools please go to the following web-address: www.doe.mass.edu/ssce/GenderIdentity.docx.
