This school is over rated! The teachers are tired and have bad attitudes! The classrooms are very large and give the children way too much homework that should have been taught while at school. The teachers are giving the parent their teaching responsibility. I have witnessed horrible teacher behavior. I don't appreciate my child being humiliated and treated rudely for no reason. The staff overlooks behavior problems in the same children and it robs my child of a decent education. It's time the school Dept. takes their rose colored glasses off and deals with the real issues at this school!

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.
