It's nothing more than a PC survey run amuck. How students feel is a real accurate barometer as to how the school is actually performing? The ranking is a joke and quite frankly the paper it's written on I wouldn't wipe my you know what with it.

Tewksbury's schools, based on tangible data, is an above average system. Not perfect by any means.... but above average.

In that case, why dont we show up in the ranking but all of the 'known' good-schools (i.e higher MCAS/SAT scoring) districts
show up higher. It's difficult to fool the rest that long and with this consistency.

>How students feel is a real accurate barometer as to how the school is actually performing?
In that case, whats wrong with us?

Joke? I dont feel like laughing when I see depessed value of my real estate,
empty store-fronts and plots on a prime location of our Main St.

I stopped celebrating average a long time ago.
I interview college grads for jobs/interships and I guess you know what happens to an average resumes.
