    "I completely disagree with the parents who say their kids get 2-3 hours of homework EACH night. When i was in 5th grade, i got very little homework and it was easy to keep up as long as i paid attention in class. I am now in 8th grade, still at chocksett, and i love it. They're preparing us for high school, and those who try(like me) can easily get straight A's. I'll admit, some of the teachers are less qualified than others, but overall, this school is pretty great."

    "I used to b a student at this school and I now attend Monty Tech. Although I was an A and B student I did often struggle at Chocksett. I definitely agree with the November 2008 comment that there is very poor communication between the teachers and parents, or even the teachers and students when it comes to requirements or homework and projects. These teachers assign a lot of work to these students. They start preparing the students for high school in the 5th grade when they should be preparing them for the grades ahead in middle school."

    "I agree with the post of November 2008. So far, our 5th grader has experienced 4-5 hours of homework every night, including weekends. Although there is a tremendous amount of work required of the student, I am uncertain as to how much effort is put in the other end. Research projects are required, yet there is little library time and basic mechanics of creating reports are are not reviewed. Our class' website often requires updating, and errors are found both there and in notes handed out in class. I've been witness to students receiving failing grades in 5th grade as well - students I've known to be quite good at Houghton. There is a problem here."

    "Our daughter was an A student until she started school here. Many other parents I have spoken to have the same experiences with this school where their kids are struggling to get even average grades. This is a VERY important transitional time in these 5th graders' lives. The teachers have done nothing to help these kids with organizational skills - they are just expected to take on everything that is thrown at them from many different directions and are given 2-3 hours of homework EACH night. I have seen my daughter come home with well below failing grades on tests and were shocked that there was no note from the teacher to prepare us for it. There is poor communication with the parents. These failing grades have left our daughter with feelings of low self esteem at this transitional time when we are trying so hard to build her confidence."
