    I am a student here at Broad Meadows and i believe that this is one of the best schools in massachusetts . even thought this school is a public learning center i believe it is so much better than a private school. Mr tag had done so much to make thus school a better place. Al the teacher and stuff members are so great here. If a parnet is trying to look for a school for there child/children to go to i would totally pick this schol

    I think that this is the best public school in Quincy and is better than most of the private schools.Mr.Tag is a super principal in every way. The teachers arereally good at thier job and even manage to squeeze in important backround knowledge when it isn't mentioned in the book. BMMS loves to make learning fun. Broad meadows is also the ODW mother school.

    Hello I Am one of the students At BMMS this is a quality school. We have every thing you could ever want. We have a recording studio where students and teachers can record their favorite songs. we have a stage for our plays and we have a Dance Dance Revolution game in gym class which can be fun while we work out at the same time. Im going to high school next year and I am going to miss this school
