Hello, all my child is currently attending a school located in the city of Methuen. While he gets the assistance that he needs his younger sibling went in for an evaluation for an IEP program and the feedback that I received was not up to core. The letter documentation in regards to the eligible was basically copied from another student and pasted into my child's response. I know this because things that my child was not tested for was under the evaluation as well as the other student's name and when I asked why the respond was not taking ownership instead they stated it was an error. My oldest child does get a lot of assistance where needed however I am unpleased with the way they handle the cases for EIP even with a doctor's referral on hand.
I have spent more than half of my life in Methuen Public Schools. Although I have had my fair share of bad experiences with the schools or the teachers, I have had a pleasant experience for the most part. I very much enjoyed being a student of the Methuen Public Schools since kindergarten and have watched the system grow as a whole for the better. If I myself were to reside in the Methuen area in the future, I would trust my children with the Methuen Public Schools system.
