As a parent, I'm VERY impressed with Aborn Elementary. Small school feel and plenty of attention to student's needs. My son needed more challenging math and language because he came in above grade level. His wonderful teacher is providing that especially for him - extra work, which he loves! The principal, Ms. Muxie is spectacular in her leadership and in communicating with parents. The PTO is very active and I'm glad to see packed rooms whenever there are meetings with parents and school events. All the staff there is extremely polite and interested in your child as an individual. The nurse is amazing, the reading specialist is a gift! The newsletters, the phone calls, the meetings and emails - everything contributes to sense of belonging to the community and to parents knowing what's going on. This school is truly a gem in Lynn and our family is very satisfied with the quality of education there. I highly recommend it. This, coming from a parent who considered very seriously not enrolling kids into Lynn Public Schools. I don't regret having him at Aborn!

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.
