The Josiah Quincy School, whose history of educating the children in Boston goes back to the mid-1800's, is ranked consistently among the top public schools in Massachusetts.  The school, with its striking mural, is a landmark in Chinatown in the very heart of the city.  Josiah Quincy draws upon the energy of its surrounding neighborhoods and the diversity of its students to create a vibrant center for learning that seeks to prepare young people for global citizenship. 昆士學校教育波士頓孩子的歷史,可追索到19世紀中葉,一直以來已是麻州頂尖兒的學校。學校位於華埠,校舍頂層醒目的壁畫,已成波士頓市心臟的地標。昆士學校的動力,是來自週圍的鄰區,多元化的學生創建了一個充滿活力的學習中心,讓青少年成為全球公民做好準備。
