Frank M Silvia school is a great school. All the staff and teachers are very dedicated to the children. I have two children at Silvia school and so far we have had a great experience!! The parent patrol can be hectic but they are trying to improve that system to satisfy our needs.

My daughter has attended this school for the past three years. I love the staff and can see my daughters growth in this time. The teachers are very i involved and continues to keep me posted if my daughter experiences any changes. The school is beautiful and the staff is lovely. I would continue to recommend this school to anyone I come across.

Not very impressed at all with this school. My child has been a student here for 3 years. Is not advancing with education and feels left behind. Not enough follow through with the children. Mid year transfer in progress. To pick your child up or drop off is a NIGHTMARE!

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.
