Friends of Cambridge Rindge and Latin School (FOCRLS) is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit association, sustained by the efforts of a network of parents, alumni, and members of the community.  FOCRLS was founded by CRLS parents Elaine Schear and Donna Spiegelman in December 2006, with the mission to develop, support, and enrich the academic and social development programs at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School and to support the alumni of CRLS and its predecessor schools. In so doing, FOCRLS promotes achievement and a greater community investment in the future of CRLS, its current students, and its graduates.
