Plymouth


Summary:

The Plymouth school district in Massachusetts consists of 13 schools, including 9 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 2 high schools. The district has a mix of high-performing and lower-performing schools, with some standout institutions like Manomet Elementary and Federal Furnace School leading the way in academic achievement.

The top-performing schools in the district, such as Manomet Elementary and Federal Furnace School, boast impressive test scores, with over 60% of students proficient or better in core subjects like English Language Arts and math. In contrast, some schools like Hedge Elementary struggle with lower proficiency rates, highlighting significant achievement gaps within the district. Factors like racial diversity and per-student spending appear to play a role in these disparities, with more diverse and lower-spending schools generally underperforming their counterparts.

While the district's two high schools, Plymouth North High and Plymouth South High, perform around the state average, the middle schools, Plymouth Community Intermediate and Plymouth South Middle, could be an area for improvement. Addressing the achievement gaps and replicating the practices of the standout schools could help raise the overall performance of the Plymouth school district.
