Welcome to Luther Burbank Middle School

At the Luther Burbank Middle School, we join together in partnership with our community to foster life-long curiosity and love for learning. Our collective purpose is to build wisdom, knowledge, respect, responsibility, and compassion by engaging the head, hands, and heart of each one of our students. We embrace challenges as opportunities for growth, and we hold high expectations for all learners so that each may achieve to his or her fullest potential.                            ~ Laura Friend, Principal

arrowsPrincipal's Update
Beginning next week, our students will commence state testing with the Next Generation MCAS (Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System). The Next-Generation MCAS test builds upon aspects of prior MCAS assessments. The test includes items developed by PARCC, along with new items specifically created to assess the Massachusetts learning standards. If you are interested in taking a peek at a sample ELA, math, or STE practice test for your child’s grade level, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has posted sample tests here. The practice tests give a glimpse into this year’s assessment and are worth checking out. All in all, the MCAS is designed to measure student performance based on the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework learning standards and to provide information on the performance of individual students, schools, and districts. MCAS offers us an excellent opportunity for our students to show just how capable they are by demonstrating all that they have learned throughout the school year. As parents/guardians, you can help!
