The history of the Cambridge School of Weston goes back to 1886, when it was founded in Cambridge as a traditional college preparatory school for girls. In 1931, the school was essentially re-founded as a distinctly different institution, an upper school in Weston that embraced the Progressive Education Movement — and one of the few coeducational private schools in New England. Students and teachers worked together to construct the first buildings and develop facilities including tennis courts and an athletic field.
