I think that this is the best public school in Quincy,and is better than most of the private schools.Mr.Tag is a super principal in every way. The teachers arereally good at thier job,and even manage to squeeze in important backround knowledge when it isn't mentioned in the book. BMMS loves to make learning fun. Broad meadows is also the ODW mother school.

We have a recording studio where students and teachers can record their favorite songs. we have a stage for our plays and we have a Dance Dance Revolution game in gym class which can be fun while we work out at the same time. Im going to high school next year and I am going to miss this school

About the tests

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.
