My son entered 5th grade at Lane after attending a Montessori school for his first four years + preschool/kindergarten. We were worried about the transition, but everyone at Lane was wonderful and welcoming. Our son had been bored at his old school, which affected his performance, but at Lane he's challenged and getting terrific grades. He's also eager to go to school each morning, something I thought I'd never see. The level of homework is reasonable and I very much appreciate that we (parents) are kept up to date with curriculum and expectations. Our only regret? We didn't send him to Lane sooner.

the regular ed classroom teachers are knowledeable work hard and are for the most dedicated teachers. The policies protocols to meet the needs of special ed students needs to be implemented to be less harmful to special ed students therefore that is why I rated the school lower than I may have there is no policies in place to deal with certain behaviors and this is frustrating due to each student is handled differently on some of the same behaviors which than effecct the relationships of children with one another and children with special needs feel as if they are bad and unwanted this has been ongoing for quite sometime.

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.
