Hirsch is a first grader at NEST+M, an elite, three-year-old, public school on Columbia St., and is excited about going on class trips and catching up with friends. Hinson, a second grader, is looking forward to going back to school, because “it’s more fun there.” Above right, Agatha Scaggiante, 5 1/2, is entering first grade at NEST.
