Medford is an excellent school, doing whatever it takes to help each individual child reach academic success! They instill value in the students and care about them very much! My children are new students this year. Having come from a private school, with extreme learning differences, the teachers and staff have done everything possible to help each one of my three children in every area they needed help in. It has made for a much smoother transition than I expected. My family feels very blessed to be a part of the Medford School Family!
