This school is severely lacking the required skills/standards that a proper school should have in working together as a collective team with families who are involved and invested in their child(ren) education. Seek other schools in the area.

I have been disappointed in most of what Memorial offers academically. For the high-achiever, there is little challenge; work is often low-level and repetitive. Discipline is often mechanical and automatic, lots of it, but mostly ineffective. There are good intentions and good teachers / administrators, but methods are not always current or responsive. There is room for improvement.

I love memorial! I'm a student there, and the teachers are great and there all very friendly. =D My brother is in high school now, and he went to memorial for 4 years, and i'm going into 7th grade, and this will be my 3rd year here, and every year, I have gotten good, friendly, and smart teachers. Anyone would be very lucky to go to this school. :)

I came to Memorial in the middle of the year and the teachers and staff made me feel very comfortable. At Memorial, we have fun and get a good education. Memorial is the best school I have attended, it made me not want to leave.

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.
