We moved to Taunton last year and had a very difficult time transitioning our son to his new middle school. He eventually got reassigned to Friedman middle. The amount of time they spent with him helping to transition him to their school was incredible. We were able to notice changes right away in him. The special ed department went above and beyond with him. He went from struggling every day to gaining an amazing sense of confidence due to the great teachers and support staff there. Everyone there is very welcoming and genuinely concerned with the student's well being. They have the knowledge and the right supports in place for every student to succeed.
