First i thought its a great school but its not. Some teachers are great but Admins here have double standards. I won't recommend this school to anyone!

I used to go here and it's pretty good. When you compare it to other schools in the district such as Ferryway, it's okay. The teachers are pretty good and actually it's pretty disciplined. The school is a very good suburb school. I went there for 5 years and now I go to Boston Latin, so the academics aren't bad. There is a great afterschool program and instrumental program. All in all, it's an okay place to go.

I have had 4 children go through this school. I have been very dissapointed with the school overall. The lack of disipline and leadership. The lack of listening and acting or at least trying to act on complaints from parents. There are alot of whispers going around the school yard from parents and they all sound alike. The teachers and staff just don't get it. They talk and talk, but do not listen. They are also very good in labeling and immediately classifying anyone who questions them 'a problem'. I've had 3 out of 4 children pulled and if not for the fact the Salemwood is full, my last son would be pulled as well. He is on a waiting list that I pray a slot opens up soon for. The truth hurts and so does this school. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

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.
