My son attended this school in 2000 and it still hasn't changed any. He was and threatened by a group of 4 or 5 kids. They did nothing. Then when one of the bullies threw a punch at my son infront one of the asst. princ. HE got suspended along with the other kid. MAKES SENSE TO ME
My family and I are fairly new to South Weymouth. At first, we absolutely loved the school and the welcome that they gave us and our child. But unfortunately that was all they had to offer, good talk and a nice smile ... There has been numerous incidents that have taken place between some of the children including our child and as a concerned parent I contacted the school immediately! I was told they would take care of it, further look into the situation and call myself or my husband back. None of that has happened! I tried calling, emailing and have been down to the school more then once and still nothing! Not only have I tried contacting the principal and 2 assist principles but also I CC'd the the school administration office.. Still nothing! Our child is good student and wants to learn without feeling as if she has to look over her shoulder and protect herself since the people in charge don't seem to want to do anything about it. As soon as we are able to, our family is moving to a town with a better, caring school system. Absolutely the worst school we have ever had to deal with!

i wnt to this skool the teachers are funn and great they teach you bette than a lot of other skools
Both middle schools in Weymouth are abysmal. As a substitute teacher in both Abiligail Adams and Chapman Middle, I've seen things in these schools that if the parents knew about, they'd pull their kids out in a heartbeat. There are kids sitting in classes with not just broken English, but NO English whatsoever. Administrators call it 'immersion.' I'd like to see some of the decision makers sit in a class in Tokyo, and try to 'just get' algebra in Japanese. It's absurd. There are at least 4-6 kids in each class with serious behavioral/emotional problems mixed in with kids who want to learn. The capable ones are held back while the teachers spend the bulk of the time trying to stop Jim X from swearing, or threatening another student, or teacher, or kicking over chairs. It's a frightening atmosphere days for both teachers and students alike.
