This is a warm and fuzzy school where parents and teachers work together for the good of the children. We have a supportive PTO which provides special programs and monetary support. We also have committed parents who volunteer their time and energy to help whenever it is needed. The principal is very visable and approachable. She knows all the kids by name. The Burrell School is a wonderful place for students to learn and for teachers to work!

This school goes far beyond the basics of Reading, Writing and Arithmetic! There is an ever present sense of community, team work and family. The students not only will have a strong educational foundation but will also be well on their way to becoming the type of citizens and leaders we need within our Foxboro community and our country!

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.
