I don't know what the best school is, but Brown School is exceptional. Teachers are wonderful and there is a strong sense of community and caring. Test scores for Brown exceed most if not all other public shools in Natick.

Johnson School is one of the few truly community schools--the vast majority of students walk to school--and a few years a go was designated a "Blue Ribbon School" by the federal government. While all the elementary schools in Natick are excellent, there is a certain charm and distinction about Johnson and most parents rave about the teachers and leadership at the School.

I also know of several families who moved to the village area because they have young children and want them to attend Johnson!

My only child attended Memorial School, and then continued on in the Natick School System, graduating from Natick High School. Accepted at all her college picks, she then went with early acceptance to Babson, which was just named the #1 school for entrepreneurship by US News & Reports. On my street alone, 3 others who are Memorial School grads were their class valedictorians and went on to Harvard (2) and Dartmouth. Without a doubt it is an excellent school. Natick's Brown School also gets very good reviews from parents whose children have attended it. And rounding out the top 3, Lilja School always scores well with current parents. I have lived in Natick for the past 24 years and would be happy to discuss this in more detail with you. I've been a top Natick realtor for more than 14 years and can attest personally to the quality of life Natick affords. Good luck in your home search!

Memorial. Good ratios (e.g., student/teacher), excellent test scores, and kids are from South Natick and West Natick, two of the most attractive parts of town.

It appears that rank-wise, the elementary schools that ranked in the first five places are: Brackett in Middlesex, Muraco in Middlesex, Gates in Middlesex, Vinson Owen in Middlesex, and Academy Avenue in Norfolk.
