I love T.E.Sl. My kids are going to this school for the last 4 years. One of my kids is physically challenged. There were days when I felt that my life is a complete hassle with everything my daughter have to undergo. But even on those days, if I go to school, I feel blessed. That is where she flies with her dreams, that is where she is admired as a princess, that is where my hopes regain their wings. Staff and even kids are so caring that I never felt left alone. They do have a special way to grow into your heart. My kids love their school and so do we.

Highly qualified teachers that teach in their certified area. Understanding and use of differentiated instruction. Understand the children as students and as individuals. Great school/parent communication.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted August 7, 2008

The teachers need to learn to be more communicative with the parents instead of letting small problems become major issues. This is a major concern for me and my wife and we have left Tyngsboro due to this issue.

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.
