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.

About the test

In 2014-2015 Massachusetts used the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in English Language Arts, grades 5 and 8 in Math, and grade 10 in science. The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, 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. As part of the state's two-year test drive of PARCC, districts chose whether to give PARCC or MCAS in Spring 2015, with the exception of the 10th grade MCAS, which remains a graduation requirement through at least the class of 2019 and was administered in all high schools.

About the test

PARCC is a new state test that could replace MCAS for English/Language Arts and Math in 2016 for grades 3-8. It stands for the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. PARCC is designed to measure whether your child is learning what he or she needs to know and is able to do at each grade level. As part of the state's two-year test drive of PARCC, districts chose whether to give PARCC or MCAS in Spring 2015, with the exception of the 10th grade MCAS, which remains a graduation requirement through at least the class of 2019, and was administered in all high schools.
