    This an Awesome School. My children go here and they say they learn and have fun at the same time!

    This school is in need of improvement. The MCAS scores are not good for science and math and do not appear to be improving. The school has been placed on the needs improvement category by the state. A new Math program called Orachards has been introduced and has been presented to parents. Of course if the home does not have a computer the home school partnership does not help much.
