MCAS Testing 2020/1 (Action required from Grade 11 families by Nov 16th)

The state has announced that MCAS testing will go ahead as planned this academic year. In addition to regular testing in grades 7-10, an additional computer based testing session has been created specifically for students in Grade 11 who were unable to take MCAS this past year.

Further guidance as well as testing dates will be forthcoming from the state in relation to testing. This will be shared with you as we receive it. 

Families in Grade 11
  • Please complete this form by Monday November 16th indicating that you do/not wish your child to take the MCAS exam in January. I will assume that you would like to have your child take the MCAS in the spring with Grade 10 if I do not hear from you.
  • In addition, for parents/guardians who are interested in learning more about the tests themselves, DESE have put together a number of useful resources, here
  • John and Abigail Adams financial scholarships for Grade 9, 10 & 11 MCAS performance
