    With Mrs. Molle the Little School has really taken off. Amazing group of teachers and an engaged principal. So happy to have my children here and be part of an amazing family! The only complaint I have is that we really need a new playground. One thing at a time!

    Great experiences so far with 2 kids - 2nd and 4th grade. Teachers are great the PTO in this school is super in fundraising great community of people. Thought anbout private school when override failed last year but they are doing a great job of weathering the storm and the parents really are involved.

    I think the Little School is an awesome school. The teachers are great and really care about the kids. The before school program run by the paraprofessionals is a great program. The paraprofessionals are very much in tune to the kids needs. I have to agree with the previous parents about the principal. He is definately behind the times. I think he is arrogant and doesn't seem to care about the kids or the parents.

    I heartily agree with the previous parent's review. The teachers at the Little School are great but that does not apply to the administration. The latest newsletter from the principal was mainly a list of 'don'ts' for parents. His latest 'don't' is that the school will not accept phone calls from parents changing their child's pickup routine after 2 00pm! Aren't many of those changes made because of a last-minute emergency? Enrichment programs have been requested but they haven't happened. Parents are not asked for input on the before and after school programs. Disappointing for a 'high MCAS community'.

    The School is great however an After School Program or extended day (6 p.m.)will tremendously help working parents as most of them work in the City. The after school ran by the YMCA is very expensive and mediocre. Homework help should be considered as the priority of the program as well as educational activities should be put in place.

    The Little School is nice and 'little' there is a personal feeling to it and the teachers we have had seem dedicated and professional. The principal however is behind the times and not committed to making the school top-notch. He is not online and neither are most of the staff. The website is virtually nonexistent displaying maybe two things. The before school program run by the school and the after school program run by the YMCA are expensive and mediocre. There are no enrichment programs offered before or after school.
