My Daughter went to the Morey for PreK for a Speech delay, she learned so much and started talking so much. They helped her a lot! Her teachers are great! Ms Lynn is AWESOME! All the teachers that work with my daughter are! Any questions or concerns were answered, theyre always friendly, helpful & my daughter loves going there. The staff at the Morey are good people that go above and beyond, from the receptionist to the assistant principal. My car battery died while picking up my daughter and I had like 4 different school faculty outside in the winter trying to help me, my daughters teacher actually got her car to jump start me. I love this school & will be sad when my daughter has to leave it, 2013/2014 will be her last school year because we are not in the "zone" anymore :( I will miss this school, this is her 2nd yr there & She has learned SO MUCH!

Nice school with great teachers. The teachers and administration are very engaged. They get involved with after school student activities too. Communication with both the teachers and principle is very good.

I like the way the principal,teacher and staff have open communication with the students. And i also like how they leave recordings for when your child is absent, when theirs special events or when their not going to be school due to weather the night before and etc.

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.
