I've had two kids at memorial and one about to start. This is one of the best small town elementary schools around. Teachers are incredible and believe in the kids as individuals. Class sizes are small. Parental involvement on many levels. I think it's too bad that someone rated this a one star just because one teacher isn't there anymore.

This school needs Mrs. DeLuca back, badly. She is a wonderful teacher and is greatly missed.

Hopedale has one of the most progressive and advanced school systems in the area with curriculums for every level of ability. I have been told by a member of the state's board of education that Hopedale is recognized as the best school system in the sates, especially after the recent $30m upgrade to the buildings, tools, systems and personnel.

I really appreciate the emphasis on treatment of others, charity, and community involvement. Memorial School is a real treasure, and a unique school in a unique community. A real "small Town School" with-in Greater Boston. This public school has everything I looked for in private schools.

It is small and the classes are small. The teachers really care about the kids. everyone knows each other. It is like a modern day Mayberry.

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.
