Thanks to an outpouring of community support, in March of 2011, the BPS district-wide sailing team took the water for the first time with a small, but extremely dedicated crew of sailors. The team was comprised of students from all parts of Boston. They had one thing in common: a passion for sailing. The season culminated in a strong C-Division finish at the Mass Bay League Championship. The teamâ€™s success was highlighted in numerous news articles, and we were honored that it received national praise in the Council for Great City Schoolsâ€™ June/July 2011 issue of Urban Educator.
