Acushnet


Summary:

The Acushnet school district in Massachusetts consists of two schools: Acushnet Elementary School and Albert F. Ford Middle School. While the elementary school is a standout performer, the middle school appears to be closer to the state average in terms of academic achievement.

Acushnet Elementary School ranks in the top 23% of Massachusetts elementary schools and has maintained a 4-star rating from SchoolDigger. Its students significantly outperform the state averages on MCAS tests in both English Language Arts and Mathematics. With a student-teacher ratio of 12.9, the school is able to provide more individualized attention. In contrast, Albert F. Ford Middle School performs closer to the state average, with mixed MCAS results across grade levels. It ranks in the middle 31% of Massachusetts middle schools and has a 3-star rating.

The Acushnet school district appears to be doing an effective job at the elementary level, but may need to further investigate and address any gaps in the middle school curriculum or instruction. Additionally, the district could consider ways to foster a more diverse and inclusive environment, as the racial demographics of both schools are quite homogeneous. Overall, the district's relatively low student-teacher ratios and equitable resource allocation are positive factors, but there is room for improvement, particularly at the middle school level.
