We are proud to announce that CCSC was again among the highest-performing public schools in Massachusetts based on the just-released 2013 MCAS scores.

For the second consecutive year CCSC earned a #1 ranking in English Language Arts (ELA) on the 10th grade MCAS exam, with 100% of students scoring either advanced (63%) or proficient (37%) on the test.

As impressive, our Student Growth Percentile (SGP) scores continue to be among the strongest in the state across all grades. Our 7th graders ranked 5th and our 10th graders ranked 10th statewide for their SGP, which measures the median rate of learning growth over time. For the second year, the SGP for 10th grade ELA topped 80%. Our SGP scores were in the top 10% of schools for 7th grade math and 8th grade ELA and math.

Congratulations to the twenty-two CCSC seniors awarded John and Abigail Adams Scholarships for college. This number represents over 60% of this year’s graduating class!

An Adams Scholarship entitles the recipient to up to eight semesters of free tuition at any Massachusetts state college or university. Students become eligible based on their 10th grade MCAS scores. CCSC’s Class of 2014 performed exceptionally well on the 2012 MCAS, earning the school a #1 ranking in both ELA and math with 100% of students scoring advanced or proficient on both exams.

The CCSC administrative team has added a new position and a new member this year with the arrival this month of Lower School Associate Principal Nathan Dineen.

Mr. Dineen will work closely with Lower School Principal Becki Norris, a founding faculty member at CCSC, to ensure that students in grades 7 through 9 understand and adhere to the school’s Code of Conduct. He also will serve as a resource for faculty and staff on best practices for effective and consistent classroom management.

Mr. Dineen has eight years of experience as a history teacher and as a special education supervisor in public and charter schools in Wareham, Canton, and Marlborough. A graduate of Bridgewater State University, he earned a master’s in educational leadership and management at Fitchberg State University. In addition to his classroom experience, he has coached high school wrestling and football teams.

With one week left before classes start on Wednesday, August 28th, we have put together this Top 10 checklist for families.
