Review of Quincy, Massachusetts

Merrymount Elementary reality check
Star Rating - 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 "leadership."
