About Us

Built in 1955 on a portion of MDC property that was once both farmland and the site of the Stony Brae Golf Course, the Furnace Brook School (named after the old Blast Furnace in West Quincy) was renamed the Charles A. Bernazzani School in 1989 after the untimely death of its popular principal.

As an elementary school, our major task at the Charles A. Bernazzani School is to ensure that students learn basic skills in an environment conducive to excellence in education. The school strives to achieve the goals of the Quincy Public Schools in its quest to educate students to become self-fulfilling individuals, good citizens, and competent workers.

In addition, we support the mission statement developed by the Massachusetts Board of Education as part of the Education Reform Act: to provide each child with the values, knowledge, and skills needed to achieve full potential in his or her personal and work life and to contribute actively to the civic and economic life of our diverse and changing democratic society.
