Breaking News: Southbridge High MCAS Scores “Evolving”




Forget those charts and links I gave you for Southbridge High School’s Assessment and Accountability results on the spring MCAS tests. They’ve vanished!

Now there is a combined report for Southbridge Middle/High School.

If you go to the assessment page, this is what you get:




















On the accountability page, you get this:


Apparently, there has been a recombination of Southbridge High with Wells Middle School as Southbridge Middle/High School. However, while Wells was ranked a Level 3 school, the combined entity appears to be ranked as a Level 1 institution.





At this time we have no further information.

My appreciation to Brent Abrahamson for bringing this to my attention.

  1. If they combine the results how are we supposed to compare the middle and high school with others in the state?

  2. This is just an effort by Ely and the femme four to hide what Bill Bishop achieved. Wake up Southbridge. You threw a selfless public servant to the dogs.

  3. It's really time for the state to step in.

  5. This is BS. We all know what's happening. Prencipe and her buds are working for the teachers union. They worked to get these two new liberals in there and move out Bill and go after Scott for not giving away the store to them. Now there working on the cover up.

  6. This is the same way Ely worked in New York. He got caught there and we were too stupid to see it.

  7. I feel fairly certain that this will be cleared up. And for those Kool-aid drinkers above I do hope that the detailed stats for Mary E. Wells and Southbridge High School are restored to the website for both of those schools.

    It will be a worthy discussion to determine how Southbridge High School received the state's highest level. I look forward to that analysis.

    1. I agree. But I think it is time for the administration to make a clear statement about the issues.

    2. I also agree because the publicly mandated stats are at present unavailable.

  8. If you are so interested in the scores, go to the DOE website, they are there. SHS -- Level 1 that means they were making significant progress. The lowest schools in Southbridge are Level 3. I think the State has some explaining to do about why they rate the district at Level 4.

    1. Significant progress? More like AMAZING progress. Students come out of performing at a Level 3 and two years later are performing at Level 1. Yes AMAZING (also questionable).

    2. The Board of Education reserves the right to determine a District Level. Even if no school in the district is a level 4, as is the case in Southbridge, they have concluded that Southbridge is an "under-performing district."
