Has a terrible support system for students with IEPs. The head of the department Mona Blumstien once said in court "there is no purpose to an IEP". If your child has a learning disparity or a language base on don't send your child here. Try landmark or move to another town.

The school is very helpful with kids to be in the right classes and get the right help when they need it. The teachers there help the kids all they can it just wonderful.

Although I was pleased with the school when we first attended, I was quickly disappointed in the school staff. Their principal Mr. Watson is not qualified and is more than rude to the parents.

I think that the principal, Mr. Ralph Watson, should actually contact parents when they call. Maybe he could also be more involved with the kids. The teachers, however are wonderful. The school is quite safe, but not because of the principal. It is safe simply because it is the town of Swampscott, with ...  Read more
