Both schools are celebrated for their Catholic school educations, but what is the difference between the two? Are there differences? Both schools send oodles of students to Boston Latin …

He learned about bees at the Beethoven, offered condolences to Mayor White's family, stopped off at Holy Name and even did a little shopping at Roche Bros. Starting at the Beethoven School, Brown donned his famous brown jacket, and was met by a throng of television reporters, who pelted him with questions about his daughter's band being paid to play at his campaign events.

Inside the school several eighth-graders from the Ohrenberger School, the Beethoven's feeder school, asked Brown to come to their school and give them a civics lesson. Brown shook hands…
