Five years ago, I would have given Medfield Public Schools an Excellent rating. Teachers are very dedicated, but have increasingly lost their voice in the current culture where no one dare say a word about what is best for students out of fear of retribution. Decisions are made from the top, with little meaningful input or influence from key stakeholders. Task force, advisory group and search committee recommendations have regularly been overridden, so few people are motivated to participate anymore (unless they want to win points with the administration). Student voices are also silenced. Many of the best teachers/staff have left, and it has become increasingly difficult to keep staff in the hardest-to-fill positions, especially special ed. There have been comments (first-hand and second-hand) made about a toxic working environment.

If you have a child that requires special eduction for learning disabilities this is not the place to be. We have had to fight for what our son needs since grade 1 and have had a private tutors since them. One way teaching style does not work for kids with learning disabilities. Public schools need to figure out how to teach to all kids in a respectful way and cultivate a positive experience for all. We finally moved our son to private school (no thanks to Medfield) and is now 6 years later he is getting the right structured learning approach and is thriving. By law children are entitled to a free and appropriate eduction, after years of being fed up in Medfield it was my choice to do everything possible and take the financial burden, he clearly was not set up to succeed.
Medfield Public Schools used to be great. It was a great school system but within the last few years the schools have focused more on academics, pushing kids to go to college and pushing kids out into the world with little to no basic life skills. The things they teach in classes are things you will never need to know in life, and you come out of school with all the knowledge in the world on useless information and no clue what a tax return is. Medfield did a good job preparing students for writing in college, I felt well prepared in that aspect, but pretty much everything else taught was never needed at college.
