Hull Public Schools Hosts Successful Open House for Local Realtors

HULL — In an effort to share all the great programs, events and accomplishments happening at Hull Public Schools with prospective homeowners, Superintendent Michael Devine held an open house for local realtors last week.

While the vast majority of students residing in Hull attend Hull Public Schools, the district has seen a decline in enrollment due to fewer children living in town compared to 10 years ago.

“We wanted to invite realtors into our schools so that they could learn more about everything that’s going on, from kindergarten through 12th grade,” Superintendent Devine said. “It is our hope that they will then take this information and share it with their clients. Hull is truly a great place to live, work and raise a family, and that’s something we’d like to ensure is conveyed to prospective buyers.”

On Oct. 3, 20 realtors met Superintendent Devine, along with Assistant Superintendent Judy Kuehn, Principals Christine Cappadona, Anthony Hrivank and Nicole Nosek, as well as Assistant Principals Kyle Shaw, Rebecca MacDonald and Dan Mastrogiacomo at Jacobs Elementary School for a presentation on how Hull Public Schools stands out among its neighbors. Topics included:

  • 1:1 iPad program for all students at the Memorial Middle School
  • 1:1 Chromebook program for all students at Hull High School
  • Small class sizes at all schools
  • All inclusive sports teams that move onto regional and state competitions
  • An exceptional special education program that meets the needs of nearly all students in their own school

Realtors also learned about some of the many student accomplishments throughout the district:

  • MCAS scores above state average
  • Outstanding college acceptances (i.e. Harvard University, MIT, Bates College, Boston College, Northeastern University, Georgetown University.)
  • League championships in lacrosse, cheerleading and cross country
  • High School band recognized at national music festival, WorldStrides OnStage
  • Drama program recognized at the State Drama Festival
  • 85 percent of first grade students read at or above grade-level

Hull High School Media Specialist Tara Grosso also shared her personal experience living in Hull, after moving with her husband and two school-aged children from Hingham.

“My entire family is thrilled to be living in Hull,” she said. “We all love it here.”
