Living in Boston

North Bennet Street School is located in one of Boston's most culturally diverse neighborhoods, the North End. Residents and visitors of the North End can enjoy a variety of food, shopping, and culture, all within one walkable neighborhood. It has historically been a place for immigrants throughout the City's history, and NBSS has been a part of the North End since 1881.
