I think Mosier is an awesome school. Mr.Gallager, the VP of the school is nice. He handles problems very well and is great with the kids,too.

I have not been happy with this School and its Principal for quite some time. I am concerned that Mrs Auth, the principal, is more interested in good press and placating folks than actually ensuring that our students are being given the proper foundation on which to build their education. The school does have some good teachers.

My son is in second grade at this school and so far it has been good. His teacher is very experienced and gives a good, well-rounded education. Their class just went on a field trip to UMASS this week which the kids loved. Overall no complaints so far about this school. I also like the size, grades 2-4.

My youngest child is at this school now, and I have had two others complete their education here. I have found it to be excellent~ I think Pat Auth does a wonderful job and all of the teachers have been great!

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.
