VTS in Boston

This page is under construction, thank you for your patience during our update.

VTS has been part of the Boston educational scene since 1993, when early versions of the approach were piloted in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.  Since then, VTS has been introduced in more than 40 schools in New England, and strong programs flourish in a range of elementary and secondary schools throughout the region.  Boston has also been the site of numerous conferences, workshops, as well as research projects, studying the effect of VTS on student growth, learning and academic achievement.
