Veritas Prep Charter School

Putting every student on a path to college!

Veritas Prep charter school was founded in the belief that all students are entitled to a high quality public education. We provide a structured, positive and safe middle school where student achievement comes first. Veritas Prep opened in the 2012-2013 school year with 81 fifth graders and will enroll a fifth grade each year, eventually serving up to 324 students in grades 5 - 8. Visit us online at www.veritasprepcharterschool.org to find out more about enrollment and job opportunities.

Mission: Preparing students in grades 5 - 8 to compete, achieve, and succeed in high school, college and beyond.

Help stop the spread.
Our amazing school nurse, Ms. Ravizza will be in the school office at Veritas on Tuesday, May 12th from 10am-3pm for medication pick up, including EpiPens and inhalers. Please contact Ms. Ravizza if this time does not work for you. Feel free to reach her at 413-351- 8322 or via email at [email protected].

It's Teacher Appreciation Week, and we are so grateful to our Veritas Prep teachers and staff for everything they have done and continue to do for students, families, and each other. Help us celebrate by shouting out teachers and staff in the comments! #teacherappreciationweek #eddthataddsup

Throughout his time at HCSS, he participated in Robotics Club, the National Honor Society, Student Council, and his favorite sport Wrestling.

Park Rangers from Springfield Armory came to 5th grade to do a presentation about Shay's Rebellion-- which happened right here in Springfield in 1786. Scholars have been learning about the formation of our government after the American Revolution in History class. As a part of the program scholars "became" a person from US history and learned about their role in Shay's Rebellion. They then worked in groups and participated in a mock trial in order to determine who was most at fault for this rebellion: the farmers, the state government officials or the federal government officials and the founding fathers. #edthataddsup #history #springfield #parkrangers
