Students & Families

Massachusetts students are first in the United States in reading and math and are competitive internationally. Their success is a direct result of support from families, educators, civic leaders, and the community.

The web pages below are designed to help families explore different school options and individual districts, learn more about supports for English language learners and students with disabilities, become familiar with statewide testing and graduation requirements, and find resources to help students in elementary, middle, high school, and beyond.

In addition, adult learners will find information below about adult education, including English classes.

Because of students' hard work, educators' dedication, and the consistent, bipartisan support of policymakers and community members, Massachusetts schools are the best in the country and competitive internationally.

In the 2017-2018 school year, students, parents, and teachers are celebrating their incredible accomplishments and preparing for continued success.
