We have 3 children in JA currently. We love the close feeling of community. They have so much to offer in the way of technology. They support parent involvement by means of open communication and the capability to go online to see what the children have been learning (with explanations as well if needed).

I love the community feel the school has. We all work together to make it the best place to learn. The PTO is the best! They are the most supportive group of parents I have ever worked with.

Johnny Appleseed School has wonderful teachers who take great interest in their students learning aspects, the school also promotes special activity programs so students learn the value on participating with others in sharing their talents, and not being afraid to display then openly. Johnny Appleseed School places the student first, and always provides a very high quality in education, and learning development programs.

My son it s finishing the first grade and he is passionate for his school. The school has a great team work to assist my child on his educational development. During the entire year Johnny Appleseed School kept me informed and involved with the school opportunities and growths. My family wants to thank each one that helps my child to have a great school.

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.
