MCAS Results

One standard of school quality is the rate at which our students score Proficient or Advanced on the state-administered proficiency tests in math and English, known locally as the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System, or MCAS exams. Generally, while success on the MCAS exams does not necessarily correlate directly to college outcomes, student scores are an important barometer of not only student achievement, but also teacher preparation. Historically, our 9th graders typically arrive 3-4 years behind grade level in math and English, so merely passing the MCAS exams is a noteworthy achievement. Our stellar results showcase our teaching excellence and student drive.
