My daughters is in 5th grade and has attended Schofild since kindergarten. I cannot say enough about how great each of her class teachers has been. The school has a geat sense of community and each child is made to feel that they contribute to the school by being the best they can be.

Phenomenal. Our two children came to Schofield from a very expensive, highly-regarded, 'elite' private school. We have found Schofield's educational experience superior in almost every respect. The teachers are outstanding -- highly skilled, passionate, caring. The academic regimen is challenging, varied, and tailored to each child's needs. Schofield feels like a family, and the hacienda-style architecture of the school building itself fosters a feeling akin to that of a small village. It's a privilege to be able to attend such a school.

my kids moved to schofield last year in the middle of the school year. The principal, teachers and students made sure my kids had an easy transition. academically, the teachers use a variety of methods to spike the students interest. Parents involvement is maximum.

I definitively love Schofield for my children!, it's been a great educational environment, children really feel a strong bound to the school and their teachers, which in turn facilitates the learning process. Resources are more than appropriate and cultural activities organized by the PTO stand out above the regular curriculum (think about getting a REAL Russian folklore group to perform for them when they have their Russian culture studies). Overall Wellesley has such a great school system and Schofield is a core part of such excellence, kudos to all Schofield staff and parents who make it possible.

Schofield is a great school with dedicated teachers and a caring principal. There is lot of parent involvement. The school 'got back' its library, art room and music room this year. The class sizes are small, around 22 students per class. We are extremely happy here.

I would give this school a 'good' not 'great' rating. Quality of teachers and commitment is high. Principal is a little 'tired' and not especially progressive. The school facility is sub-par especially for such a high end town. This past year the school lost its art and library rooms, as well as its Spanish program. A real disappointment.

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.
