Neighborhood House Charter School

Succeed anywhere

One of the original 14 charter schools in Massachusetts, NHCS was founded in 1995 to provide a better educational option for low-income Boston families. Today, NHCS serves 400 students and is one of the most sought after pre-K–8 public schools in the city, successfully serving a diverse community of children in grades pre-K through 8 from Dorchester and surrounding Boston neighborhoods.

NHCS offers a quality education to a diverse community of Boston children through a neighborhood-based school that integrates education with social services and health care programs.

The school’s motto, “Succeed Anywhere,” describes its educational vision that every student at its school will graduate with the necessary knowledge and skills to attend a high-quality high school, whether public or private, focused on college preparation, the technical trades or the creative arts. To achieve this goal, NHCS offers individualized learning programs for each student — including students for whom special effort is needed to overcome physical, social, emotional or learning challenges.

After developing a brand strategy, Signature Graphics created a modern, progressive, and dynamic design template for NHCS’s unique identity. To support the brand and ensure consistent application, we developed a wide-ranging set of brand identity guidelines.

NHCS is committed to developing the interests and talents of all of its students.
