Posted May 17, 2006

I've been going to school here since kindnergarten. I'm in the eighth grade and i'm preparing to leave soon. The students here become tight with their class and in the jr. High, there are even bonds with teachers. The learning is great and the staff all keep you smiling. There are so many things that go on there and there is also a tiem for work to get done. Unlike schools with more students, the teachers will get on your back if you don't do your homework. By the time you leave, you know things about your teachers and classmates and they know a lot about you too. You form bonds and inside jokes and it is a healthy place to be. If you are in trouble people are there to worry about you.

I grew up in Clarksburg and attended Clarksburg Elementary School from Kindergarten to Eigth Grade. Our class was tight, we were all friends (we had our moments, but over all we had the best time of our lives). I lived in North Adams for quite a few years while I worked. But when my oldest daughter was about to turn 5 and I found out the school that she would have to attend I did not hesitate to buy my house in Clarksburg, just for her to be able to attend Clarksburg Elementary School!The class room are smaller so there are less students per teacher. I wouldn't want my kids anywhere else!

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.

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.
