The children are unruley and the teachers have no control over the classroom. Children are loud and obnoxious which makes it a very unconducive learning environment. If there was some major reconstruction, it could have much more potential

My dsughter is currently attending Mildred Ave and she loves it. The facilities are great. The staff is helpful to the parents. I sat in on one of her classes and saw how her teacher Mr, Burdman tokk command of the class. He was prepared for class and the students were totally engaged. I was offered the opportunity to transfer to the Neighborhood House Charter School and decided to keep her there. She had already started on the track team and was involved in the Gearup ISEE prrp classes. I didn not want to forgo those those opportunites. She is also taking swimming lessons everyday as part of her gym program. Its a good school.

About the tests

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.

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.
