The Josiah Quincy Elementary School (JQES), located in Boston’s Chinatown, is the largest and one of the oldest elementary schools in the Boston Public School system. It has a strong legacy of academic rigor and instilling respect, perseverance, and selfdiscipline among its students. Hailing from all parts of the city, JQES students reflect the diversity of Boston itself. Our student body is 57% Asian, 16% Black, 14% Hispanic, 9% White and 4% that identify as other. Speaking more than 20+ different languages, for more than 57% of the student population English is not their native language.
The Josiah Quincy School Association (JQSA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, raises money to fund year-round swim instruction, technology lab improvements, and field trips. JQSA’s mission is to promote the welfare of JQES students, offering recreational, educational, and enrichment activities. These activities foster selfreliance, intellectual and emotional growth, social adjustment, physical wellbeing, and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
The school itself does not have the resources to provide these lifesaving skills and programs to its students and relies on JQSA to fund them. Our student population consists of 78% of families at or below the poverty level, and for this reason, JQSA relies on donations and sponsorships to keep these vital programs functioning.

With special thanks to our partner, the Wang YMCA of Chinatown, who provides Certified Swim Instruction for our swim program at a partnership rate.
