It is a great school with lots of activities. Not only do they teach English they teach Hispanic cultures. They have Excellent teachers and if you go there it will give you an opportunity to go to a private high school maybe even one of the best. Trust me i am a student here and i am thankful that the teachers here care about their student and they want us to go far. It is a wonderful school

Absolutely amazing! My daughter has grown in confidence, has improved immensely scholastically and socially. This school and the education my child receives is one of the key reasons we live in this city. The education these children receive is top notch! This school has a proven track record and curriculum that embraces and encourages diversity, positive self image, respect and tolerance. This school affords children from all social-economic backgrounds equal opportunity to start down a rich road paved with knowledge and learning that may otherwise for some, be unobtainable. We consider ourselves to be very, very fortunate to have our daughter attend this wonderful institution.

I have been involved with this school since they opened the doors and I currently have a child in the Second Grade and one in Kindergarten. I can say with some authority that this is one of the, if not the, best schools around. My older daughter was in the first graduating class. The family atmosphere is incredible and the educational opportunities are unsurpassed! I cannot say enough about this school I can only tell you to come visit or email me if you want! I will surely answer any questions that I can!

I love this school, I wish everybody could go and experience the wonderful education these kids are receiving. It is remarkable how hard these kids work, they always do a stupendous job whenever anything comes there way. Although the school is small, it does not stop the school from being so marvelous.

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.

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.
