I WOULD HAVE GIVEN OUR SCHOOL A 5 STAR RATING, IF THEY HAD MORE TEACHERS WITH ACTUAL EXPERIENCE OR STUDIED WITH BEHAVIOR DISORDERS. I THINK NOWADAYS IT IS EXTREMELY ESSENTIAL THAT THE TEACHERS HAVE MORE KNOWLEDGE OF DISORDERS AND HOW TO PROPERLY CARE FOR THE CHILDREN,I THINK PATIENCE IS IMPORTANT. I ALSO BELIEVE SUCH A LARGE SCHOOL SHOULD HAVE MORE THAN ONE BEHAVIOR CLASS TEACHER! THE PRINCIPAL IS OUTSTANDING!! THEY HAVE A GREAT MUSIC AND ARTS PROGRAM. THEY ARE CULTURALLY DIVERSIFIED. GREAT SCHOOL WITH COMMUNICATION AND PARENT INVOLVEMENT!!

We are happy Worcester has school choice. We are done at City View, which we feel lacks strong leadership, and are in search of a quality education for our child.

City view is by far the best public school in the area. Teachers are involved, the academic program is excellent. As a parent I can provide a positive review. Thank you.

My daughter is in kindergarten at City View. I must say that my first thought when I had to choose a school to enroll her into and the Parent Info Center told me this was the best school in the quadrant I was skeptical because it certainly doesn't look like it. To my surprise, the experience at City View has been enjoyable for both her and I thus far. Her teacher is very concerned and involved and so is the Principal and Vice Principal. My daughter has grown in the few weeks she has been attending City View. However, I do think that they are lacking on the extracurricular activities department. I have not heard about any sports, drama club, arts program, or even a science club, only the required curriculum and I feel there needs to be more offered to allow cultural growth.

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.
