Alfred J. Gomes School will continue to ensure students are provided with a quality education and meaningful learning opportunities. As families are the first educators of our children, we encourage you to continue to be a part of your child’s education through the various family involvement activities planned throughout the year. We look forward to fostering partnerships between students, staff, families, and community as we work together to educate our children.

What's New?

Dear Families, 

Every year, each public school and school district in Massachusetts receives a report card. Just as your child's report card shows how they are doing in different subjects, the school's report card is designed to show families how our school is doing in different areas. The report card includes multiple measures of a school's performance, by providing information on student achievement, teacher qualifications, student learning opportunities and more. A link to our school's report card is available below:

                        Gomes School Report Card

We encourage you to become involved in helping us improve our school. We see parents as critical partners in the success of our students and our school, and we are grateful for your continued support. If you have any questions about your school's report card, would like to become involved in school improvement activities, or would like to request more information, please contact our school.

Sincerely, 
Ellyn Gallant, Principal

Upcoming Events

This is an update based on the recent extended school closure by Governor Baker’s mandate to extend the closure of all Massachusetts’ schools at least through Monday, May 4, 2020. Currently, all New Bedford Public Schools and the administration building are closed to the general public in addition to the City of New Bedford offices, libraries and playgrounds at schools and across the city.
