A message from the Superintendent

Welcome to the Ashburnham-Westminster Regional School District. We are a regional school district serving the communities of Ashburnham and Westminster, Massachusetts. We presently serve 2369 students in grades Pre-K-12. In addition to serving the children of Ashburnham in grades Kindergarten through Grade 5, the Districtís early childhood programs are located at the new state of the art John R. Briggs Elementary School. The program offers a variety of half-day early childhood classes for children ages three and four for a fee for service basis. Westminster is unique in that Meetinghouse School serves Kindergarten and Grade 1 with their neighbor, Westminster Elementary School, serving Grades 2 through Grade 5. The District also operates the Extended Day Program which offers high quality child care for elementary school children on a fee basis. The programs operate in our elementary schools from 6:30AM to 6:00PM.

The Districtís sixth through eighth graders attend Overlook Middle School. Overlook Middle is a true middle school with each grade having two teams of teachers who work with the same students which allows them to better know and understand their students and their needs. Oakmont Regional High School completes the districtís schools serving Grades 9 through 12. The high school offers a variety of courses including many advanced placement courses as well as several unique courses such as robotics. The high school also has robust art, athletic and music departments and is famous for its marching band.

In short, the Ashburnham-Westminster Regional School District is a great place for children to learn both academics and related life-style activities.
