At the timony everyone is family and we all do things together. No one is ever left out for any reason. I am an 8th grader at the timony and going off to high school I know the timony is a great part of my life I will never forget. The teachers as well as staff and principals always give the best advice and show that they care for ones education and its just a great school all around. After all family is important.

I have sons in 5th and 7th grade in the Timony School. They have excellent teachers who really care for their students. Homework is graded quickly. Help is always available for under-achieving students. The school staff is very helpful. The school itself is in excellent condition, with both an upper- and a lower-school, with separate facilities for most uses. The teachers are kbowlegable and open, very competent and friendly. I rate this school as the best in Methuen!

I used to attend the Timony and I believe it is a really wonderful school. I never felt that excluded by the teachers and they really instilled self-disipline into us.

I moved to Methuen 2 years ago and I have to say I was nervous about changing my kids to a new school, but the Timony school is absolutely amazing. Great teachers, principals and great education. The best school

Our daughter is in her second year at the Timony School and we are very pleased with the staff, administration, and overall quality of the school. We were initially concerned when we moved to Methuen because the schools are so large, but at the Timony we have found there is very personal attention to the students, the curriculum is challenging, and the staff is very caring. Discipline, at least in the lower grades where our daughter is, seems to be very good. Overall we are very pleased with the education and environment of this school. Of course the building is very nice and well-kept also.

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.
