The guidance teacher locked me in a closet and stood outside the door so i wouldn't escape and then they called 911 and said there was something mentally wrong with me and I almost had to do blood tests and I was a student there.

Excellent school, great teachers. My 1st grader daughter loves school very much.... Her teachers are very nice and really pay attention to her as well as to other students. Very friendly environment.

This school is horrible. They hire teachers who are well-educated, and dont have an understandingof how to treat kids. There is barely any room for the students, and all they think about is MCAS this MCAS that, and they still do bad on the MCAS. The principle doesnt even pay attention to the problems going on, and they dont heven have a lot of field trips which is very boring. They have enough money to buy $1,500 toch-screens for almost every classroom, but they dont have enough money to pay for field trips, or more school equipment that students actually benefit from.

To develop a strong desire for learning in each student with skills and discipline. To suceed in a competitive world we provide the excellent quality education, based on innovative latest research and technology. Good grades at O-level ground work right from the grass root level so we prepare the children for these grades right from the junior level. We stress on writing skill by having our own method, i.e., provided by the renowed institutions like Crescent, DPS, Convent. etc... In science, our expert teachers demand practical investigation and exploration with project working. We also emphasize to Art, Technology and Physical Education. Students are encourage to participate in games & exercises to develop physical coordination. For achieving mentioned goals for standard education, we get help from internet and computers. MA Grammer's competent & experienced teachers encourage their students

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.
