Yes, but rarely did it crack the precious "top 3". Those relocating from elsewhere seemingly forget MA is a top 3 state, meaning an unmentionable district like Tahanto (Berlin-Boylston) still has an average SAT score which ranks equal to or higher than some coveted districts in states like GA or MI.

Going by MCAS scores, Harvard absolutely was in the top 1, 2 or 3 consistently.



I thought Tahanto was considered stellar too (way above average anyway), although not quite a Harvard or Acton-Boxborough.

It doesn't have the population demographics to be way above average, at least by the very high Massachusetts standards in side 495. School performance correlates highly with median household income and percent college grads. If you're comparing it to a Holyoke or a New Bedford that's overwhelmed with all the special needs students, sure. It's a totally reasonable school system. If you have engaged parents, you'll likely do just fine. In Massachusetts, average is really good.

Probably includes the finished basement, so each level is <700sqft.

There's always going to be a premium on turnkey.

I think it's funny the woman who wrote the article uses acres as her unit of measurement for the lot: "The 0.09-acre property...".

I like that one quite a bit. Though, with that tiny lot probably no space for a garden.

Not only is the lot tiny but take a look at the street view. That kind of location could put off some people.

Street view looks fine to me, unless someone doesn't want to be near a park due to the noise of kids playing.

Depends on how many people are going to live there. I think it would be fine for a couple just starting out.
