My two oldest children have attended this school for the past two years . By my observations, the school is subpar. As other reviewers have stated, the current principal is very rude and unfriendly. All the encounters I have had with her have been unpleasant. The school is poorly kept and unclean. The only saving grace are the teachers. They are passionate about what they do and truly care for the students. I really wish the principal would be removed and more funds invested in maintaining the grounds.

Great school especially after school program. Principal is the worse, rude and mean. Academically great.

Great school, wonderful teachers and they work well together. There is a loving environment within the school. I've had children in the school since 2006. The principal changed in 2007 and that has been the one sour part. But the teachers as usual make up for the downfall. Great parent involvement.

I like the school, the location, the before & after programs, but the Principal is the ONLY glitch.

I was a former student of this school and the teachers helped you, not only in your studies, but also on a personal level. The school is so small that the people in it are very close and it is like a family.

I was very nervous about this school because my son was transferring from a private school and I knew nothing about public schools. The principal is #1 and the teachers really take a strong interest in every child. They have alots of resources for extra help and music, art and all sorts of clubs. Parent involvement is great, in fact the parents at the Everett are more involved than the parents at the private school he transferred out of. Great school!

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.
