I couldn't be happier about this school. My daughter attends first grade and just received our first Progress Report as well as her scores compared to the Quincy benchmark. I've found the teachers to be excellent: smart, attentive, and assertive while the principal is friendly, involved, and engaged. The parents are very involved in volunteering and helping staff a parent-run library program and a Reading Counts in school reading comprehension program. The school receives lower GreatSchools rating because it's one of the few schools in Quincy that offers Special Ed programs. Students come from Squantum and North Quincy to attend this great little school in this nice little community of Squantum.

Our son started at Squantum Elementary School a year ago and we are very happy with the education he receives along with feeling he is in a good and save place. Teachers work closely with the parents and always have an ear for concerns and offer advice. The principal is there to great the kids and parents in the morning or wish them a good day in the afternoon. The PTO is very active to help support the school. This all helps to provide an excellent place for the kids to start taking their first steps to independence.

Our son had an excellent first year in kindergarten. Relatively small class size (17). 16 kids were reading by year end. Test scores misrepresent the calibre of the school due to a large population of non-native english speakers (Chinese) which provide an interesting multi-cultural experience.

This school has great leadership, dedicated teachers, and a strong curriculum. Parent involvement could be better.

Excellent school.Excellent Teachers. Looking forward to a new year in September. Quite a few of the Long Term Teachers have retired as of the end of this school year. The Teachers who have retired have done an outstanding job and I wish them well. We are looking forward to the new year with new and creative styles of teaching.
