I'm the parent of NAHS students who went to Atkinson. They are currently at the top of their respective classes and have gotten several merit scholarships at renowned colleges. I have seen other former Atkinson students excel in robotics, sports,music, Model UN and the debate and math teams. The backbone of their education came from elementary school - honestly though, North Andover has pretty good schools overall. Parents and students do have to take responsibility to put some effort into the education process, doing homework, checking homework, follow up with teachers if they see something of concern, spend some time in the classroom volunteering and ALWAYS know there are 2 sides to the story your kid brings home, even through high school. Following up with respectful email to a teacher has done a lot to clear up any issues we have had even if the outcome isn't what we expected.

The quality of education at this school is questionable. I have 2 children in this school (currently first and fifth grade) whom bring home class work that despite having errors is graded incorrectly as 100% or similar; the biggest offense being spelling errors that the teacher checked off as correct. MCAS scores have been declining which reflects poorly on the teachers, yet the Fifth grade class was recently berated as a whole for not trying hard enough and not retaining the information taught. In my opinion, it's more likely the fault of several educators and placing the blame on the children is absurd and uncalled for.

The school does have wonderful values, the principal does know everyone by name and there is a general sense of friendship and community from our Atkinson family. More parent involvement would be awesome, as it's always the same parents involved, but we do it together and we do it well. Great school, great teachers and all inclusive community.

Atkinson has suffered in the past couple of years but with the right leadership and attitude, the school has overcome adversity and is continuing to become a family. Everyone, teachers, students, administrators and families are working together to ensure that the best opportunities are offered to the kids.
