Ross is a very good school. We have a wonderful new principal, dedicated teachers and a great PTO. We are a walking school so the parents see each other more often. The best thing about the Ross district is that we are very much a community.

I cannot say enough about the Ross School. My children have been going since 2005 and they love it. The teachers are dedicated and enthusiastic, they really give their best effort to our children. The extra programs that are available such as the afterschool book club and homework study groups are wonderful. The new principal is also doing a wonderful job of making the school a very warm and friendly enviornment.

My son is in the fourth grade at Ross school and I cannot say enough good things about his experience. His teachers, classmates, and support staff have made his time there a great success. My son has performed extremely well and enjoys school.

I would NEVER recommend this school. A teacher told my child that was in 3rd grade that she was stupid and had no commen sense. (This is quoted & accurate, word for word!) Also, another teacher thought my child should've been kept back and wrote that it the file, but never told me, the mother. I would NEVER recommend this school!

I have two children that attend this school. The teaching staff is extremely proficient and I feel that my children have received a great education. My second child is adopted and they welcomed him with open arms and helped me to assimilate him into the environment. They worked closely with him and gave me great feedback. I feel the teachers are top notch and have a commone goal of educating children.

Classroom Instruction is poor. There are some students not getting the help they need at the school. The students spend too much time on politial talks and not enought on mathematics or hardcore English studies. The staff is very connected to the school committee members more so than the parents of the students are. The relationship is counter productive to the creation of a strong learning enviornment itself.

This school offers a lot of activites including band, chorus, and other after school activities. It also has an after school program to help prep for the MCAS exams.
