I LOVE this school! The Dutile has a fantastic principal and her love and enthusiasm for teaching/learning overflows onto the teachers and ultimately the children. I'll be very sad to see my last child graduate from this school in 2011!

It is a great school that gives you a family feel. The teachers are wonderful and they make every student feel like it is their only student.

We have a great caring community school ( the children, the teachers, the parents and the principal),

I found that if you are not on top of what your child is achieving and at what level they are at, the school is not forthcoming on giving this information to you but you have to drag it out of them.

I am a highshcool senior who went to this school from 2nd-5th grade, and love every minute of it. There was always something going on and something new to learn. I would recomend this school to anyone.

I have a child there going into the 3rd grade. He's been there since kindergarten. He has learning disabilities, but the faculty, including extra teachers and counselors, were there to help me and him. They scheduled classes for him to take the time to learn things on his own, and because of that he had exceeded all my expectations for his education. I am very grateful for all they have done for us.

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.
