this is the best school so far and i will never forget every second i have spend in that building. i think others should know is that this school is not as dull as the others.I love all of the school subjects. they teach me everything i need to know and its just wonderful. if you want to get a good education and learn everything you need to know, this is the place for you. the staff members are great the principle is very kind and the students are really nice to one another. i would love for this school to win this prize because it will mean a lot to me. not just to me but to the teachers and staff members. thank you.

Wonderful school. A bright spot in Lawrence. Mrs. Sirois is truly an angel, cares and helps kids. We love her and we love this school.

This is the worst schol in Lawrence having been a former student i know all about this school. The teachers don't teach and the principal is the worst ever. Kids look at this school more like a social gathering more than they learn.

This school is the best school ever! The teachers are phenomenal. My daughter is in the 8th grade and I hear every days how well she's doing. She loves this school. She loves the sports the art and so much more. The level of parent involvement is excellent! They have meetings monthly which is very helpful. Its teaching us what our children are doing and what they're learning. Mrs.Santiago is the humanities teacher, and she's just blowing the students away by how much she knows about history. She make history fun too. Mr.Lynch, the math teacher, is very helpful. She's teaching the students things that will be helpful in the future. Mrs.Tanzer, the writing teacher, is also a very helpful teacher. She's showing my children how to write peoms, stories, and many different things. She also shows them how to write properly! Mrs.McInter is the science teacher. She's just awesome!

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.

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.
