5... The school has a lot to offer, but there seems to be some turmoil among the staff there. I think this can be a distraction to the wonderful school that it is, and hope that whatever issues exist, can be resolved.

This school has been in a downward spiral for years now. Lowest MCAS scores in Medford. Ineffective principal. TERC math coming in 2011. Only going to get worse!
