This is defiantly a school you would want your son or daughter to attend! I've been at this school for 6 years but I have to leave now to attend High School. The principle there is amazing she knows each & every student, she's someone you can talk to, she knows how to turn your frown upside down. The teachers there are also the best they sit & work with every student & we cant forget about the councilors! This is a wonderful, caring school. It brings tears to my eyes knowing I'm leaving & can't come back. Put this as one of your choice you really won't regret it!

The style of the building itself is not the best model for learning, however, the principal is amazing and seems to know every kid and there are like 1,000 of them. Great leadership and caring for the kids.

Most aspects are wonderful, but God forbid you get the wrong teacher for your child because that's it, you are stuck there and it makes for a terrible year. Some of the teachers are mis-matched with the personalities of the students.

My daughter is in kindergarten and loves going to the Raymond School. My husband and I have been very impressed with everything the school has to offer from the start. If your child is entering kindergarten next year, please take a look at the Raymond, you will not be disappointed.

I love the Raymond School! My daughter has attended this school for the past 4 years. It is an excellent school. They have added junior high to the school this year and I'm so excited that my child doesn't have to go to another school until high school.

My children transferred into the Raymond from a private school and I am amazed at how wonderful every aspect of their new experience has been. To be honest, the Raymond school wasn't in our top 3 choices, but my husband and I are thrilled that it worked out the way it did! The principal's involvement is exceptional and my 3 kids love it here!! The staff makes each child feel special. It is an experience I am so thankful for.

I believe that the Raymond School is one of the best elementary schools in Brockton. My daughter has attended this school for two years and they have been two very great years. All of the staff at the Raymond are exceptionally wonderful!

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.
