I am currently enrolled in Sizer School, and it has come a long, long way since being in the old Notre Dame school building. The food is still mediocre, but edible, the teachers are some of the best I have ever had the pleasure to be taught by, and the people (any grade above 8th) are kind and understanding. The only problem is when 7th and 8th join sizer, they don't get what this school is about, so they think they can act like Fitchburg Public School kids and get away with it. This school has changed me from the weird, reclusive kid who reads books into an outgoing person who is on the rise to be a professional yoyoer. I love this school and the community it has. Also the academics are different from regular schools. 8/10 would recommend.

The small class sizes allowed for unique one on one learning experiences and the building was brand new which provided a very sophisticated learning environment, overall I had a very good experience I met plenty of kind, loving people, and I learned the skills necessary to succeed in life.
I loved going here! The students really have a voice in their education, and their learning can be fit costumed to their needs! There's a lot of school spirit, from monthly community meetings, to our various varsity sport team.
