Shore Educational Collaborative

Chelsea, Woburn, and Peabody, MA

Shore Educational Collaborative was established in 1975 as one of 24 educational collaboratives in Massachusetts, providing public special education to students with disabilities. Over 180 students aged 3-22 attend our school in Chelsea, receiving a comprehensive education and related services.

At Shore, we believe that every person can grow, learn, and achieve goals that are meaningful to them. Our work is guided by our core values – educate, enrich, inspire – and we operate with respect, integrity, accountability, and compassion. We center our students, striving to be exceptional in our programs while honoring our community of diverse backgrounds, experiences, beliefs, and perspectives. Our class sizes are intentionally small – usually no more than ten students – with a dedicated paraprofessional in each room. We believe in collaboration and a strong team, with an 88% retention rate of professional staff. We’re excited for you to join us.
