This school is by far an embarrassment for public schools. Yes there are some teachers who are up to par but the office staff lacks the ability to make parents feel comfortable. The school in itself is run down and my children have had health conditions (asthma & bloody noses) ever since attending this facility. I personally believe that this place should be torn down.

I dont like this school. They have no extra fun things for kids to do outside the classroom. There are no field trips, and very rarely do they have days where the kids may explore science outside. Its like they sit at a desk and just listen. They dont learn in fun creative ways. There are no computers for lower level grades. Compared to others this is not a good one.

My kids have both attended this wonderful school. I am happy to be a part of this 'family' and love the teachers and all the staff. It is a very warm and fuzzy school where all parents are always welcome to check on their kids and participate if they are able to. The community is a part of this school and we are proud to be a part of it!

What an excellent school! Older and full of character, Tilton has made these first two years of my daughters schooling extremely memorable. The staff is wonderful, the fund raisers and book fairs are always fun, and the curriculum is great as well. We are in the process of moving to the west coast, and I'll feel very blessed if I find a school like this one for her to go to out there. I HIGHLY recommend this school to anyone and EVERYONE!!! :)

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.
