Dighton-Rehoboth Honors Excellence in MCAS


The Dighton-Rehoboth Regional School District recognized students who had excelled in the state’s standardized testing system, MCAS.

The Commissioner of Education for the Commonwealth has reached out to districts to acknowledge exemplary progress and performance on the state MCAS test.

“Standardized testing has always been a challenge because it is very difficult for our outstanding teachers to balance the expectations of a statewide test vs. the ever-changing approaches to curriculum and instruction,” Superintendent Bill Runey said at Tuesday’s school committee meeting. “This has been magnified by the significant disruptions to the educational delivery that started in March of 2020. 

When our students are recognized for performing at a level of excellence, it is a testament to the wonderful educational environment created by our teachers and staff as well as the support they receive at home from their families.”

The students honored were:

  • Beckwith Middle School – Jordan Arcisz, Noelle Blais, Jacob Bourgoin, Deven Dagnese, Allison Gagnon, Luke Gallucci, Zion Louis, Zachary McCann, Brendyn Murphy, Davi Oliveira, Brody Palazzi,  and Alexander Quin.
  • Dighton Elementary School – Lincoln Duquette, Rhys O’Donnell
  • Dighton Middle School – Keira Ahaesy, Corinne Braga, Kyleigh Feeney, Logan Holt, Ella Leclerc, Jaila Soares
  • Dighton-Rehoboth Regional High School: Trinity Aguiar, Jocelyn Borkowski, Adriana-Madison Bozek, Penny Braga, Jacob Coutu, Alexander Dalpe, Lucy Latour, Sophia Lin, Gabe McCrohan, Kylie Mirra, Emma Mullen, Miranda Oliveira, Abigail Renaud, Madison Roy, Ethan Sammis, Brodie Sammis, and Victoria Williams.
  • Palmer River Elementary School – Audrey Brown, Jameson Taylor
