Our son just graduated from Monument Mountain in Great Barrington, MA, and we couldn't be happier with everything about the school. Excellent teaching staff, fantastic, devoted Principal, (Marianne Young), and a fine student body. 5 stars!

One of the greatest strengths is the sense of community that is nurtured by school leadership, teachers and staff. They encourage and promote academic excellence, are willing to be creative with independent study and also have a great respect and and strongly support opportunities in the arts -( music, art, acting, drama). As a parent of a grad and current student I can attest that the preparation received in the sciences and writing make students well prepared for college with some courses and students, match a first year college level. Definitely a school with life.

I'm not a parent, however I am a class of 2004 graduate of Monument Mountain Regional High School. I have to say my experience at Monument was excellent. I have never felt more comfortable in a school environment then I did at Monument. All of my teachers were excellent, challenging, and extracurricular activities were plentiful. Punishment was justified by the crime, and the rules were fair. Many parents stayed continuously involved with the school, some filled in when they were needed, but left it to the experts. I wish I had the opportunity to transfer sooner, my two years were not enough at this wonderful school. My experiences at monument was how us graduates put it 'Monumental'

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.
