Their are both positives and negatives to this school. The MAJOR positive is that their is that small town feel so you always feel like your child is getting what they need from the teachers. Often the classes are so small it can feel like your child has 1:1 attention. Everyone knows your child and your child is comfortable with everyone in their school, from the principal down to the custodial staff everyone knows the kids and that is very nice. The down side can also be that it's very small. Every class is small (for example almost every grade only has the one class for that grade) so if your child doesn't have a lot in common with those in their grade it's not like they can just find other kids their age in another classroom to hang out with. If you have 10 kids in First grade than that's it! They are connected to those 10 kids. Also it seems like several of the families here have grown up in Weymouth so they have family connections. As a Weymouth transplant it's difficult to cut through those ties. I often feel like an outsider because I don't know the locals and don't have those local ties also some of these parents also went through this school and know the staff from when they were kids. So trying to merge into the already established school community is sometimes tough. I do think the school is active in obtaining money from the state and allowing for high tech and special events to come to the school for their students so I do feel my child is getting a good education and that's most important.

As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
