Community ratings & reviews

    Tucker is both a great school and a great community. Not only have my children learned what they needed to learn academically (they both scored in advanced on the MCAS -- not that I care about that insipid test) but they have learned what they need to learn socially. Tucker looks like the future and learning to negotiate that future is invaluable. Oh yeah also French Immersion. And great teachers.
