    The best school you could ever see. Great staff commited adminstration and wonderful setting. It is surrounded by a lovely nieghborhood and beautiful woods. It is not in the inner city and has a much nicer feel to it. I went there as a child and learned so much. The teachers are the most commited you'll ever find. Best Fitchburg public school EVER. If you are looking for a place for your child Crocker should be your first pick.

    I think Crocker has the most caring faculty and work so hard to meet the needs of each child!

    I had the joy of working with the teachers staff and children of the 21st Century After School Program there to help educate about the need of pet ownership responsibilities. The pet education presentations were given to 3 other elementary schools in Fitchburg as well but Crocker welcomed us with so much enthusiasm and willingness to participate they stood out beyond the rest. This isn't the first time Crocker has been a leader in outreach. They have helped initiate food drives to relieve hunger for those with low-income or the homeless. They are always finding ways to teach the children that education is more than just a classroom and a set curriculum; it is about caring for each other.

    Crocker is a great school. As far as I can see the teachers and staff do all they can to do anything to better a child. You can't go wrong sending your child here.
