This is a wonderful small, neighborhood school, where the teachers really care about the children they work with.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 8, 2007

My children attended L-E for two years. We had a good, but not great experience. Our family appreciated the close-knit comunity that encompases the school. The school administration knows every student. Most of the teachers are excellent. We were unformtunate in getting a teacher that did not tune into our child's learning disability, putting our child at a great disadvantage.

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.
