The Argenziano School staff is committed to teaching all students in a culturally-responsive manner, with attention paid to diverse needs, cultural background, and language spoken at home.
The Albert F. Argenziano School is driven by the mission of supporting and fostering an educational environment that results in the development of students who are literate in all subject areas; experienced in current technologies; able to think critically, behave ethically, lead healthy lives, and assume the responsibilities of participation in a multicultural and multiracial society. In the Argenziano School community, all students, families, teachers, and staff feel welcome, safe, are treated with dignity and respect, and are free from discrimination and harm.
The Argenziano is named after a former superintendent of Somerville Public Schools who served from 1993 to 2005.
