The Moody school has great teachers. I believe they concentrate on the goals at hand for each grade. Not a school if your child is interested in music, dance or anything extra. The school music presentations have been repetitive as our child moves on in age I find my self listening to the same songs at assembly that heard for years. The art teacher is progressive. Not a good school if you have a child that need a full time nurse at hand example a diabetic child. No nurse all day just par time. No play ground for children to blow off steam during out side play. Just a lot of black top. If you are interested in administration who stands up to bullying on the bus or in the school forget that. The principal does not need your input on what you want your child exposed to. Will rebut all request for change and make your child the issue. If all your looking for is great teachers, jump on in. If your looking for a well rounded experience for your child I would say look else where! Old building needles to be modernized for modern education.

My son have always had a hard times learning. He started at 1st grade with a preschool reading level and basic math knowledge. He is now in 4th grade and have improved greatly in recent years. His last 2011 MCAS Test Scores came back with a high advance in Math and average in Language Arts. I am very much grateful of all the encouragement and understanding of the staffs through out the past few years. If it wasn't for them, I don't think my son will be proud of himself, now!! Thank You, Sincerely!

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.
