Fuller has served my family exceptionally well. Class sizes are small, the staff is top notch (agood mix of new teachers and veterans), and the administration runs a tight ship. There is an active parent group, and great communications (a daily email goes home to families to share events and announcement info.) My child was well challenged and well prepared for High School. There were plenty of extra-curricular opportunities, too. This school is diverse: it houses standard education, ESL and Bilingual programs, Special Needs inclusion and sub-separate programs. Each program is fairly self-contained, though. I definitely recommend Fuller Middle School to Framingham families.

This school serves a diverse population of children including those having special needs. The teachers are particularly caring and dedicated professionals.

This school is very horrible in many if not all aspects in the academic expectancy for my children. I first sent them here then transferred them to walsh middle, a much better school. Fuller is a disgrace to the Framingham Public school system.

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.
