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.
Great school! My son loves this school. My wife and I love this school. We love everything about it-Head of School, teachers, curriculum.
Mu daughter just graduated from charter . Over the years Charter encourage her to be responsable member of her comunity .
MCCPS failed to meet 25% of the state's anti-bullying plan. There were problems at the school with bullying
MCCPS is a school the engages kids in the experience of learning. They work together enthusiastically, treat each other with respect, and contribute to their community regularly. MCCPS is a wonderful school for parents, too!

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!
Individuality is really respected and celebrated, which in turn fosters a love of school and learning
Children are empowered, responsible, motivated, and learning in an environment they can call their own. Children love to be there and parents are an integral part of the holistic learning environment.
great school, great people, kids have lots of fun learning. very community orientated
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.
Fantastic and highly above average educational environment! An unforgettable school that has made a lasting and positive impression.
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.
Excellent School! We have extracurricular activities every day! And our Acedemic Director is sooooo nice I give this school 5/5 on everything
outstanding !!! in everything very happy with everybody also children loves the school
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
