Teacher effectiveness: Neutral

Again, feel that the math is thin. They are doing the most writing in social studies and haven't seen much done in English.

Amount of homework: no rating

It seems light but I am not looking for hours of homework. Math homework is light and not always relevant.

I am not sure they students are really required to consistently work hard. The homework is fairly light and not always relevant. Especially the math seems weak to me.

Both of our children have thrived at the Andrews Middle School, excelling at academics and enjoying activities.

My daughter is going into 8th grade and has had a great experience with the school. Mr D'Alleva(principal) is very helpful and will work with parents and kids on any issue. I think the teachers are awesome and very helpful. The PTO could use some help from new parents entering the school!

Moved my son from private school to the Andrews School. Cannot say enough about this school.....from the Principal to the lunch ladies and custodians. Staff is professional and supportive. Administrators and teachers understand how middle schoolers learn and know how to deal with their ever changing emotional needs! Thank you!

VERY supportive administrators, and teachers willing to take the time to communicate with parents. Constant communication for both students and their families .

Wonderful teachers who care about the students...Principal D'Alleva and Vice Principal Marrotta are strong leaders and it shows in the student body.

My daughter is just finishing 6th grade at this school. Coming from the Roberts elementary where the principal doesn't care about anyone or anything , I can honestly say that the principal at the Andrews, Mr. D'Alleva, is WONDERFUL!!! He is so involved and organized. Keeps parents in the loop.... sends out emails, phone messages, twitter updates, school connect notifications etc.....and let's not forget Mrs. Marotta, the assistant principal....she has a way of dealing with the ever changing moods and behaviors of middle schoolers. Sweet person, but knows when and how to take charge. My only complaint, and not everyone agrees, is that a lot of teachers allow the students to retake tests after a poor grade. I think you snooze you lose. Life doesn't always give second chances, so I'm not sure that is the best way to handle things. I have heard that 6th grade is a transitional year and that this will not always be allowed. So if that's the case- which I will find out in the fall, no complaints- as far as education and staff are concerned anyway!

My son is in grade 6 at the Andrews. He really likes the school. He enjoys his classes and looks forward to going to school every day. My interactions with all the teachers have been very positive and constructive. Great teachers, great principle and assistant principle and a great learning environment. We are very lucky in Medford.
