The Cambridge School System
Cambridge, Massachusetts, is part of the Boston metropolitan area and has a population just over 100,000. Situated on the banks of the Charles River, it's widely known as being one of the top academic cities in the United States. The majority of the students living in Cambridge attend the Cambridge Public School District, which manages more than 15 schools and has approximately 6,500 students enrolled.
Giving your child a good education is one of the most effective ways to help them be successful later in life. Varsity Tutors can help your child get from their first day in kindergarten until their last day in college. By working with a private tutor, your child can benefit from a custom-tailored learning experience that places their needs and goals first, giving them the ability to build upon their strengths and overcome their weaknesses.
If you’d like to know how Cambridge schools are performing on state assessments, look at the chart below.
Cambridge Test Scores
From state assessments to college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT, most students will have to take standardized tests at some point before they can graduate. For students living in Cambridge, this means preparing for the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessments System (MCAS). This comprehensive examination is mandatory and tests the elementary and high school students on core subjects like reading, math, and science. For high school students, the subjects tested include biology, chemistry, physics, and technology/engineering.
Private Cambridge tutoring can help your child benefit from an interactive learning style that places their needs first. Instead of struggling to memorize the test material, students can work actively with their tutor to understand, retain, and apply concepts. As a result, your child can study efficiently, spending more time covering complex material while skipping past the content they already know.
Cambridge is known for having some of the best public schools and colleges in the country. While this means that your child will have access to a good education, it can also make the classroom environment more competitive. By looking at the table below, you can see just how Cambridge city schools compare to the rest of the state.
