Too many bullies! I used to go to this school 2 years ago in fifth grade, and I was bullied by everyone in the 5th and 6th grade. The teachers did everything they could, except tell their parents. Besides the bullies, I love the school. the teachers were really nice and the students get good educations.

Edgewood Elementary School offers quality education from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade. The classrooms are multi-grade: students learn to self-direct & can take advantage of the opportunity to learn advanced academics while in the lower grade of their classrooms; the higher grade students re-learn by helping 'tutor' younger students in their classrooms. Greater Boston Academy is the high school portion, offering excellent academics for a basic diploma as well as advanced honors diploma (graduates have attended top U.S. universities). Student/teacher ratio is 10:1, enabling all students to succeed. Extracurricular activities include music, sports, & drama. Community service is part of the curriculum. Edgewood/GBA is a Christian school located in a quiet residential neighborhood, accessible by the T. Parental involvement is welcomed & encouraged.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

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.
