My child started kindergarten in 2013 and I can't say enough good things about this school. The principal does an outstanding job and the teachers are amazing.

This school is led by a truly talented Principle. The teachers and specialists are committed, think out of the box and work together well ... no walls are put up to prevent teachers working in the best interests of the children. My son tranfered into the school and what a wonderful change. He is now in the middle school and it's then that I realized how outstanding Huckleberry was. My daugher is there now but, this is her last year. I wish the Lynnfield Superintendant would use this school as the model

This school is truly amazing. The teachers are fantastic and the principal is top notch! We moved to this town last year and I have 2 children in the school. For my oldest this was her 3rd Elementary school and I am a teacher so I feel like we were picky regarding the edication for our children. I love HHS and so do my children!

The staff and PTO give these children wonderful memories that last a lifetime! The children love going to school and don't even realize how much they are learning. HHS is home away from home.

HHS is GREAT!!! My daughter loves it and has nothing but good things to share with me every day about her experiences and what she has learned. I am sad that she has to move on to Lynnfield Middle as this is her last year but I believe she is well prepared.

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.
