Love this school and I agree with the five stars for the school nurse! Teachers are positive, caring and challenge their students academically to reach their potential. We found the administration extremely friendly,helpful and easy to deal with. Even with a challenging workload of projects and homework, my kids love to go to school each day!

The school nurse is the best of the entire administration. The administration has had a lot of changes with a new principal in place that finally seems to be improving the school as they had many principal changes before her. They had discipline issues, and lacked a system for watching kids on the playground (only a few teachers for multiple grades at recess). Most of the teachers were excellent, although they had to deal with the prior issue of a changing administration. The few teachers that weren't good could not be reprimanded for anything at all. I've heard nothing but good things about the current principal, however.

The administration of the Hobomock School are very unwelcoming. As a parent I do not think my opinion is respected. I can not wait for my children to move on to middle school which is a very sad position to be in. Elementary school should be a wonderful time in a child's life...

I have two children that attend Hobomock and I have found the teachers to be wonderful! My older child is in 4th grade and his work load is greater than last year but his teacher has taught the class to prioritize their work in order to complete multiple assignments. I feel that he is learning the study and organizational skills that he will need to carry with him for the years ahead. He is learning a lot this year and having fun with his class too! Mrs. Doherty is an awesome teacher and we are lucky to have her! Lastly, the office staff are always polite and helpful! I am pleased to see our young school system growing in so many positive ways!

The current principal has been there for the last 1 1/2 years. She has done a terrific job concentrating on a standards based curriculum.

We had a horrible experience with this school. There is no structure in the classroom and absolutelty no discipline. Not a good environment for children who are there to learn.

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.
