This school walks the walk. This is a very welcoming environment that encourages kids to be their best. With the students responsible for recycling, a school garden that is used in lunches, community service, enrichment classes, exhibition nights and an outstanding staff and principal. There is nothing lacking and my boys loved this school.

MCCPS is a great school for anyone seeking a well rounded education. It services grades 4 through 8 and is located in the small community of Marblehead, Massachusetts. It is community based and students are motivated to achieve as engaged learners. I have been a reading teacher here since the school opened in 1995. Parents, teacher and students are highly involved and work as a community. It's the best!!!!

There is a spirit and energy at the school that enhances student learning, self esteem, and appreciation of individual learning styles and talents. The project based curriculum and evidence based assessments makes learning a real life experience. Staff partner with parents through on-going communication in a variety of formats, which enhances community support and cooperation. Smiles and cheerfulness abound year-round at MCCPS.

We as parents truly appreciate that our children are in an enviorment that supports non-traditional learners within the classroom. Through Marblehead Charter's approach, we have seen our son go from nearly failing to working above his grade level. Willingly and independently! Amazing staff, amazing teachers, amazing school!

MCCPS is a very special place, and the best school I have ever seen. The curriculum and approach is structured in a holistic way that shows the interconnectedness of all subjects, and its practical applicability to life and the world, in a way that no other school (to my knowledge) does.

Great academic programs (especially ALEKS and Rosetta Stone) and teachers! Kids are happy there and love this school. You can communicate any teacher or principal any time by email. My daughter feels lucky she got enrolled to this phenomenal school two years ago.

The Marblehead Community School (MCCPS) is an outstanding school for my son. He has prospered and thrived. He has been challenged, supported, and appreciated. The project-based curriculum crafted and taught by caring and able faculty has provided him with opportunities to demonstrate his understanding and to create new meanings for himself. The faculty and staff are first-rate folks who genuinely care about each student everyday. It is a true pleasure to have our son at MCCPS.

Once you go Charter, you never go back! Here are some reasons: fresh, healthy meals; hearing 'yes, or why not' when I approach teachers and administrators; open door policy; homework that makes sense in manageable amounts; longer academic blocks of time allowing kids to really chew on the material; cutting edge technology that keeps the kids learning to their fullest potential (ALEKS & Rosetta Stone); kids contribute in all aspects of the school like meal service, gardening, cleaning, governing; individualized academic challenges specific to the skill level of the students; small population so all the adults know all the kids and everything that's going on; open communication which utilizes a fabulous website, email, calendar, etc; Exhibition nights when the kids shine while presenting their work to the community; and a leadership that constantly demonstrates its commitment to do better every day.

I thought long and hard about what I wanted my childrens education to consist of over and above the 'american standards' that are mandated. MCCPS supplies just about all of the factors I was looking for. Their approach to fitness and nutrition is terrific. Understanding community and learning to be accountable for ones self are covered too, there are many wonderful reasons to consider MCCPS. My 3 children and I feel very lucky to be a part of this great school part of this great school. My 3 children love to go to school

There are some serious problems at MCCPS. Parents considering this school should be sure to look closely and listen evaluate the administrative leaders and teachers. Some of the teachers have been outstanding role models for my child while others have caused our family great pain.

'MCCPS is the best school that I could ever dream of in my whole imagination! said my 4th grader with pride and enthusiasm. He and his brother love Charter. 'Exhibition is a great way for me to become more confident and show my parents what I've been doing and that I have the confidence to speak publicly about what I've learned.' He loves the way learning is organized into integrated units of study - everything is connected to everything else. Instead of gym class, there are 2- 30 minute recesses when he can play football with the older kids. He can also choose to learn yoga, tennis, or dance. My 6th grader says, 'The classes are challenging, interesting, and usually fun. I'm never bored, and I've learned a lot.' They agree that MCCPS works them hard, but they love going to school. What else could I want for my boys?

My daughter has been there since the 5th grade and on the overall has been a good experience. The only two drawbacks to this school is the lack of extracurricular activities, and the three heavy exhibitions that the school holds. The kids become too stressed out over these exhibitions because most of their grades rely on the final product of these exhibitions, whereas it seems that all their other work is overlooked.
