this is an awesome school. since my first day i have felt welcomed, excited and challenged. it is a great place to be for so many different types of people.
Samantha from Cambridge, MA
Lesley is a small enough school to feel at home, but has a large enough reach to feel like apart of a larger world. This very environmentally conscious school helps each student grow exponentially as a student through a huge variety of opportunities and self-designed programs
