Happy Hollow is a great school, the teacher are really supportive and amazing. Everyone at Happy Hollow is happy. Parents are really involved in this school. The principal does an excellent job at motivating students and monitoring them, he has an excellent staff that is very helpful and understanding to the students and the parents needs. Excellent support systems for children that have learning or behavorial difficulties. Excellent after school daycare program. The only downfall is that Kindergarden is only 9-12. Other than that I would not changes a thing.

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.
