Open Quote My son LOVED this school. He had nearly perfect attendance during his years there and got a perfect score on the MCAS when he was is in 4th grade. I attribute this to the excellent leadership and teachers at the school. He is now in 8th grade and still making straight A's because the Thompson school set the tone for enjoying school life. This school is culturely rich and diverse, which is excellent for the children there. They also have a fantastic after-school homework club. The only thing hurting this school is the age of the building, which I hear is soon to receive major updates. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
