Loved, loved, loved this school. Small and quaint; one class of each grade. Great group of parents and teachers. Only downfall is that it only goes up to 5th grade so I had to take my kids out when they were accepted into a K-8 school and it broke my heart to do it.

Our child attends this small school on the Roslindale/West Roxbury border. The environment is warm and caring and orderly. Literacy is the school's strong suit. Students also get science and music instruction. Math instruction seems to need improvement, as is the case in most Boston Public Schools. Bottom line: our child is very happy here and is eager to go to school each day. We have confidence in the school and the education our child is receiving and hope to send our younger child here in a couple of years. Note: it is hard to get assigned a seat at this school unless you apply for K1 (age 4).

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.
