Excel Academy’s 2020 District Report Card Released

Every year, each public school district in Massachusetts receives a report card. Just as your child’s report card shows how they are doing in different subjects, the school’s report card is designed to show families how our school is doing in different areas.

Excel Academy’s 2020 report card is available here

Additional Reading in Spanish & English to help understand the report card.

Please note when viewing the report card that the information reported is the same for Excel Academy as a school and as a district. The report card provides multiple measures of school performance, including information on student achievement, teacher qualifications, and student learning opportunities.

To find out more information about our school report card:

  • If you have questions about our school’s report card or would like to request information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher, please contact Jocelyn Foulke, Managing Director of Operations, at or at (617) 819-5542.

If your child attends a school that receives federal Title I funds, you also have the right to request the following information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers:

  • Whether your child’s teacher is licensed in the grade levels and subject areas they teach.
  • Whether your child’s teacher is teaching under an emergency license or waiver.
  • The college degree and major of your child’s teacher.
  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

Past Year Report Cards

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education conducts regular reviews of Excel Academy’s program to ensure the school’s compliance with state and federal laws and regulations. The results from such reviews will be provided upon request. Please contact Jocelyn Foulke at to request this information.
