Merrymount Elementary reality check - 6/20/2016
Where to start? The principal shouts rude things at parents and students and she often lies about phantom school rules. PTO members have quit over this person. Bullying is rampant and little but lip service is given to any complaints. For the kids who are bullied they will often be blamed for bringing it upon themselves. Special needs kids are especially targeted. Many school staff follow the lead of the principal and are also rude and petty. Everything about this school is geared towards the standardized testing. The month of June might as well be cancelled for how little they actually teach the kids. I think we had five field trips in the last two weeks alone. The physical building is too small, very old (1927) with a cramped gym/cafeteria/auditorium/after school space. Recess is in the back parking lot but not on the adjacent ball field. There are a handful of very dedicated people in this building but their efforts are undermined by tired Read More

Quincy MA - 10/25/2010
Not a very bike friendly city but if you are willing to driver there are biking spots north, west and south of here. Lots and lots of Chinese food places but we have yet to find one that you would go to other than at 2am after a night at the bar. Other restaurants are hit or miss; lots of "grandparent-y" type places and a few decent pubs in the downtown area. There does seem to be a lot of programs for little kids though. I'd choose this city if you really want to be close to Boston without living in the city but there isn't much going Read More

General Info. - 5/5/2009
We have lived in Quincy, MA for over 20 years. Cost of housing is a bit lower than other Boston close-in suburbs. Public schools are OK, but could be better. Quincy has good access to public transportation. Crime is relatively low, but illicit drug use is increasing, which is fueling an obvious increase in crime. City government is typical for Massachusetts - slow to respond and strongly influenced by Read More

No need to own a car when you live in Quincy.
Public transportation is always close at hand.
Remember "Charlie on the MTA?"

The Red Line subway also makes Quincy Center one of it's stops ($2.50 buys two tokens) for trips to downtown Boston with changes to Logan Airport, New England Aquarium and area Read More
