Tewksbury Public Schools Reviews
My experience with Tewksbury hasn’t been horrible but also not fantastic. They need to truly work of their faculty because I question why some teachers are hired at times, but their are definitely a few outstanding ones. Tewksbury cares about its students and strives for the best learning experience possible through electives and enforcing the common core classes. They heavily prepare the students for MCAS and other standardized tests.
If you have a cookie cutter kid who can sit for long periods of time and do worksheets, you will be fine. Or if you have a star athlete, you'll also be fine. If you have a kid that doesn't fit the mold, you're going to be in for a bumpy ride. Some of the teachers are truly amazing, and you might get lucky. But many are mediocre and teach to the middle. They mean well, but there isn't the support to help everyone reach their potential, nor does the district have an understanding of what that potential truly is.
I really enjoyed some of the teachers approach to education. You can really tell which teachers love what they do and that in a way made me want to become a teacher. Some things I would like to see change is in the teachers that do not love what they do. Many are closed off and stay very much in their lesson plan and do not provide much help when students are confused. Another thing that I would like to maybe see change is the classroom/school "decorations". When walking down the halls and through the school in general there is not much on the walls. There is no color, and it feels as though there is no fun.
