Characteristics: Accredited in 1990. The Pawtucketville Memorial School community endeavors to educate the whole child intellectually, emotionally, culturally, socially and physically within the rich framework of diverse backgrounds. We strive to create an atmosphere where students gain academic competence, learn social skills, and appreciate cultural diversity. We recognize that education is a collaborative effort and work to forms a cooperative relationship between home, school and community. Effective tools that enable the school to reach all learners are: Reading Street Literacy Series, Math Investigations, Caring School Community program, parent letters, Title I home-school compact, and homework assignment book.

The school endeavors to develop in our students a positive self image and sense of self respect, allowing each student to value cultural ideas and thoughts of others. This positive self image allows students to develop a sense of mutual respect and acceptance of differences.

School Assets:  The physical layout of our building and its location adjacent to the Lowell/Dracut State Forest allow us to take advantage of our beautiful surroundings to learn more about nature. The building surrounds a courtyard, where students plant gardens in the spring. A Peace Park was developed to serve as a physical as well as a symbolic bridge between our school and the Dr. An Wang Middle School. The hallways are cheerily decorated and the facility is always clean and well-maintained. The former are all conducive to providing a positive environment for all learners. A new two-story wing was added to the existing structure that will afford more space and additional facilities such as computer science labs and Library/Media Center for our students.
