the school is ok the police have been called on a few occasions and the food is ok though the teachers are really good at their job its the average public school with a little more situations

Lack of communication between parents and staff. Cosistency is non-existent. Students are suffering due to the "leadership" of this school.

I'm very very concerned about the quality of the information shared by Guidance at Frolio- students need accurate information delivered in a mature manner- definitely an area that needs work at Frolio.

Great school! I currently go there. They teach very well, and take proper dicipline. Their sports teams are good too, just another plus.

I'm currently a student at the Frolio. The class sizes aren't huge, the food is decent enough, and the teachers and staff are mostly nice. Some of the teachers are a little bit annoying and it can seem like they have absolutely no idea what they are talking about, but VERY few are this way. The day goes by really fast,as students switch classes, so students (Including myself) find that the day goes by much faster than it would at a school in which you stay in one class alll day. Overall, Frolio is a good school, and it's good to be a student there.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Massachusetts used the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) to test students in grades 3 though 8 and 10 in English language arts and math and in grades 5, 8, and 10 in science. The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Massachusetts. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
