What's your point? Move to Dover?
Dah....Melrose is NOT on the list! Some people you have to hit over the head - they miss the subtleties of words!
I agree but we can be much better than we are.....and many people have told our school administration and leadership how! They are just not listening.....my way or the highway...what a philosophy of education is that!
MFD: Don't get your hopes up. Until the super, SC chair and various SC members, who willingly condone and some times participate in covering up the School administration's unlawful activities, they will be spending the majority of their time attempting to defend their actions and covering up their misdeeds instead of meeting the needs our children. This takes lots of time and taxpayer's money in the form of startlingly high legal fees that Carrie Kourkuomelis, to her credit, is trying to reign in. Unfortunately, SC chair Kristin Thorp, Super Taymore and the City Solicitor have been quite effective in spending taxpayer's money denying her access to public documents that we are all entitled to see.
That is a surprising list. I wonder why Lexington or Winchester high schools aren't on the list. They have long been regarded as the best in the state. Or Westford! Isn't it universally recognized by this board as the best high school and school district in the state?
No, I was referring to Westford, the town that is cited by a certain serial poster as one of the best in the state. But I notice that Belmont High is not on this list either.
Please do me a favor - don't mention Melrose in the same breath as Westford concerning education! In one school district - teachers are flocking to - while the other one - teachers are leaving in droves - big difference.
