My son is in second grade. I like the school. The teachers and other staff members (specially Lowes) are really sincere.The school is very neat. Regarding principal's administrative qualities I don't have complain.

I believe the Wyman School is one of our superior schools. The staff is dedicated to their students and to one another. They work well together and help their students in any way possible! I myself was a student at the Wyman and my children are the forth generation to attend the Wyman School. This alone is a proud factor for all my family members. My son is the final family member and is graduating 5th grade this year. My family wants a four generations picture taken. I hope the Wyman school stays dedicated to their students and their teachers. Keep up the great work!

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.
