The Haley is a wonderful INCLUSION school. The Principal, Angel Charles, really gets kids and what they need to learn. We are very pleased that our daughter is being treated so well. The community has really reached out to make our family feel welcome. Great teachers, specialists, and support staff. All the live animals in the lobby of the school are an added bonus!!!

Great School! Teachers are always willing to help. My son came from NY and his teachers are making sure he is adapting to his new school. He is doing great thanks to their efforts.

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.
