Thank you for your interest in Our Sisters’ School.  We are delighted to welcome you to this website highlighting our innovative programs and dedicated people.

As a tuition-free independent middle school for economically disadvantaged girls, it is central to our purpose to provide a strong academic foundation. Yet that is just a starting point for us. Our true purpose is to equip our students with the foundation they need to pursue higher educations, achieve their dreams and help build their communities! For that, we know, they also need healthy self-esteem, unfettered aspiration, and resilient determination. This is our work.

As teachers and students working together towards this mission, we are guided by four key values: Community, Citizenship, Leadership and Excellence. These values, and examples of the ways in which they infuse each aspect of the OSS experience, are explained in depth on our Core Values page. If our mission and our values resonate with you, we invite you to browse our site, come visit us, and be a part of our community. We’re doing great things at Our Sisters’ School!

Our Mission, as an independent, tuition-free, non-sectarian middle school, is to educate and inspire economically disadvantaged girls from the New Bedford area. Our Sisters' School empowers girls to step into the future with valuable life skills and a mindset of achievement and excellence by providing a safe, supportive, and academically challenging environment.
