—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 20, 2004

I was a former student here(graduated in 2003) and I always remembered how I wanted to get out of there. I just couldn't wait. But now that I left, I realized what a great school it was sometimes I even want to go back. Even though schoolwork was a drag, it was fun because you kind-of knew everyone there. And you can easily make friends. Now I miss this school a lot because it made the start of your adulthood a lot easier and fun. And the best part of that school I think is that the teachers and Staff are great there. The person I miss the most is Mr. Rose. He was the best Vice Principal; he is so funny and great to talk to. And if I could change anything in the past, I wouldn't because those Middle School days are one of the best memories I have. Thank you for making it an unforgettable year.

About the tests

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.

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.
