Profile Completeness

INTERMEDIATE

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Teachers are amazing and really have challenged my child to be on a 2nd grade reading level kindergarten!

Teachers are Second to none!!!! I have had two children attend Medford Ave and one just going in. The District has just changed the Administration and they have gotten rid of the Principal that everyone is complaining about. The PTA is Great and parents are very involved. The school provides a great service to the community.

My children have had good teacheers with the exception of maybe two. The school is ok, if your child is a willing learner. The principal on the other hand leaves alot to be desired.

So unhappy with the quality of the education my child has received at this school. The curriculm is not challenging enough and teachers must focus so much attention on students with special needs that other children get ignored. My child will not be returning next year!

My first child had entered into Kindergarten this year. My first experience with schools has become Horrible because of Medford Elementary. This school is not warm and welcoming. Parents are Not allowed into the school, only up to the sign in desk. If a parent needed to carry a big project in for their child, they are not allowed past the sign in desk.

I took my child out of Catholic school this year and he now attends Medford Elementry. This school has so much more to offer than the Catholic school. He is so happy and doing so well and the teachers are wonderful!

Principal Gamberg is wonderful. He spends time with his students and places enormous importance on reading. My son is in kindergarten and knows the principals name. He comes into the classrooms and reads to the students.
