My son has been in this school since kindergarten, he is autistic and has add and ADHD. We have to fight with this school for everything, they constantly deny services, claiming no money available.

My son is 5 and has ADHD. They have done soooo much to help him and teach him how to deal with structured activities. They have patience and understanding.

Great schools - my children are learning so much - curriculum is focused on Math, mainly. Very little parental involvement - poor communication by staff and principal. Beautiful new school. I would have to agree that children with advanced intellectual abilities are not provided additional resources as delayed children. There are minimal after school activities provided, but not enough to keep active children busy during very cold winters. They don't open up the gym for kids to use after school.

I have mixed feelings about this school. The staff have always been warm and friendly and are always available when you need them to be. There are a handful of teachers I think the school needs to let go of. My son is a second grader and has had a great experience up until this year. I will have a meeting with his teacher this week to discuss some concerns I have. There are plenty of activities for the children to do afterschool and also a morning program and afterschool program for working parents for a small fee. My son happens to be very bright and I don't find that he is being challenged enough in the classroom and my husband and I have thought about switching him to a private school.

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.
