My two children attend this school, one completed kindergarten and the other third grade. Both surprise me every day with what they learn. The teachers deliver the curriculum in a way that is fun, interesting, and challenging. My children want to complete at home activities because of the incentives and encouragement they receive from their teachers. The principal and assistant principal expect a lot from the students and are encouraging and caring. Our family loves the Arnone. We are proud to be a part of such a nurturing environment.

I am originally from Brockton and graduated from Brockton High in 1979. My two oldest children (now 29 and almost 28) went to the Arnone School when they were younger, prior to moving out of Brockton. The Arnone School is comprised of a variety of cultures and teaches children how to accept people who are different than themselves and expand their thinking.

The Principal is excellent with academics and structure. Very little or no parent participation at the school with activities. No family activities unless you are in the Two-Way Language program.

Arnone school has given my child so many opportunities that I don't feel she would have received anywhere else. The teachers are GREAT!

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.
