Nashoba Brooks is the premier school in the Concord area for elementary and middle school education. It has a close knit community that is rare among private schools. My kid s confidence has increased greatly during their time at NBS because they are recognized and valued within the community. The students are moved forward from wherever their skills are - so my kids have never been bored at school. The teacher-parent partnership is real and successful. We also really like the benefits of an all girls middle school environment. I am happy to highly recommend Nashoba Brooks School.

Nashoba Brooks School has been an amazing experience. My daughter started in 2nd grade and is just now finishing up her 8th grade year. At all levels, the faculty has been incredibly enthusiastic and helped my daughter to develop confidence and skills that will perpare her well where ever she goes to school next year. We will miss Nashoba Brooks.

I have sent three very different children to Nashoba Brooks - two boys and a girl - and they all adore it. As a parent, I think the teachers are incredible, the small size allows nimble classroom progression, and the school is invested in character education. All of these factors have made it a terrific place for my kids to develop.

Class sizes are small and there is a warm, community atomosphere. Everyone knows my kids and knows how they're doing.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

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.
