The Methuen school district in Massachusetts consists of 5 schools, including 4 elementary schools and 1 high school, serving students from pre-K through 12th grade. While the district as a whole is ranked 268 out of 356 districts in the state, there is significant variability in performance between the individual schools.

The standout schools in the district are Marsh Grammar School, which has the highest MCAS test scores in the district and outperforms the state average, and Comprehensive Grammar School, which has the lowest student-teacher ratio and strong MCAS performance, especially in the upper grades. In contrast, Methuen High School has MCAS proficiency rates below the state averages.

The Methuen schools also show notable demographic differences, with Marsh Grammar School having a higher percentage of white students compared to Tenney Grammar School, which has a majority Hispanic student population. This variability in student demographics and academic performance across the Methuen district suggests potential equity concerns that warrant further investigation.
