The Cambridge Public School District or Cambridge Public Schools is a school district serving Cambridge, Massachusetts in Greater Boston, in the United States.[5]


In 2003, the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School (CRLS), also known as Rindge School, came close to losing its educational accreditation when it was placed on probation by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.[6] The school has improved under Principal Chris Saheed; graduation rates hover around 98%, and 70% of students gain college admission.[citation needed]

In 2006 James Conry, the district's chief financial officer, said that the district had a projected $4.9 million surplus due to a high state reimbursement from the Circuit Breaker program.[7]


The district, as of 2012-2013, has twelve elementary schools, with ten schools with grade levels JK-5, one English-Spanish dual immersion school with grades JK-8, and a Montessori school serving age 3 to grade 5.[8] As of that year it has four upper schools and one full high school program.[9]
