Great school! My daughter attended a "10" rated school previously, it was good but no better than Coolidge. I do know MCAS scores were higher, but I believe they were just "teaching for the test" and perhaps more focused on that than actual learning.

My son went here. We found it outstanding in every way. He previously went to Killam. He and I loved, loved, loved the French team!

The Coolidge MS staff does a great job of preparing students for high school, and of helping them survive the difficult early teen years. The 'middle school model' led by Principal John Doherty assigns a team of teachers to a small group of students, ensuring that problems are picked up early, and that kids don't 'fall through the cracks.' The academic program has a high standard, and the students learn to cope with a heavy homework load - because they will experience an even heavier workload in high school. CMS graduates do well at Reading Memorial HS, and at some of the best private high schools in the state. Parent volunteer participation and contributions are highly encouraged - this is a school well-rooted in its community.

I love this school. I feel so welcome here and the teachers are great and so nice. My son likes it so much better than his old school in illinois. I recommend this school to anyone choosing a school for there child in that area. I cannot see how any child can walk away from this school not prepared for highschool or not properly educated this school is Great. They are also a nelms (new england league of middle schools) spotlight school which means the program and all the teachers there are great. I strongly recommend this school.
