Great staff and Great school, can't say enough. I would love to keep my children with these teachers forever.

My son has attended this school for the past three years and he now hates going to school. He is constantly bullied because of the lack of supervision, and lack of adequate amount of teachers. We have had numerous meetings every year with little to no improvement on there part to help stop this. He has been diagnosed with a learning disability and was taken out of the special reading class that he had been attending because they "changed there enrollment policy for these classes"? I now have an 8 year old that cries himself to sleep because of the fear of going to school the next day. This is not how it should be and little to nothing on there end has been done to fix this. The most common response we get is that "they have 28 other students to deal with and don't have the resources to handle this". The mass dept of education dosn't know why since the school receives the most funding of public schools in mass that are not state run.

Teachers are mostly terrific, caring & helpful. Special Needs and IEP development staff is not as helpful or forthcoming about services you can obtain. Children with ASD/Autism Spectrum Disorder do not receive appropriate services. Maybe due to funding. A kiid has to slip academically in order to get the right help.Large class over 20 but less that 24 2013-14. It's a little better than 29 last year for some grades. Class size should be lower for grade2 K-4, and also because it's a Title I school. Some progress with teaching content and prep. kids for MCAS but is still a failing school for MCAS like others in MA. Homework is stressed and for some grades a packet with coversheet is given which helps children succeed. It should be that way for all grades. Parent newsletters from principal is ok. All teachers should share a web page or give weekly communication to parents about academics, projects, upcoming tests, and what's happening or not happening in your classroom. Some teachers do study guides to help kids prepare for a quiz or test. Great security with cameras and locked doors. School teaches academics, life skills, and ethics! More lunchroom and recess staffing is needed.
