My son is in 8th grade he is extremely happy in this school, He use to attend TechBoston Academy but i had to remove him, due to the lack of management... The students act like monkeys in the class and administration does not work on it. FDR is a great school compared to TBA it is actually a community and they deserve everything they get, this is a very strong school and im a proud parent for my son to be here, my son suffers from ADHD, anger & anxiety... but the headmaster & all teachers work with him and he hasgot Honor Roll this enitre school year so far!

my daughter is enjoying her K1 class. Teachers and staff are attentive, caring and capable. I am confident that this K1 class can and will strive and reach their potential, especially with the guidance and direction of the faculty and staff at the Roosevelt and Hemenway campuses. Thank You

About the tests

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.
