We currently have one early education center, five elementary schools, one middle school, one senior high school, and an administrative office building. Enrollment in our Pre-K to Grade 12 school population is over 3,400.
A seven member School Committee, which values input and participation from parents and community members, sets policy and oversees the school budget.
