For Cambridge High School Students

Students in grades 9 through 12 get to CCSC in a variety of ways.  Many students take public transportation.  CCSC is located within seven minutes of the Kendall Square Red Line stop and within ten minutes of the Lechmere station on the Green Line.  Other students are either dropped off and picked up by parents or guardians or commute on foot.


For Non Cambridge High School Students

Transportation options for residents of other cities mirror those for students in grades 9 through 12 who live in Cambridge.  Students use the MBTA or rely on parents and guardians who drop them off and/or pick them up.
