The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education released 2017 MCAS results on Wednesday.
To see school-by-school breakdowns of the results, click on the test subjects listed below for each grade.
(Note that only grades 5, 8, and 10 took a science subject test. Also, because grades 3-8 took a new type of test in 2017, year-over-year comparisons were only available for grade 10. For more information on the new version of the MCAS that grades 3-8 took, click here.)
