A message from the Superintendent

Welcome to the web site of the Ashburnham-Westminster Regional School District. First, it must be noted that last April, Oakmont Regional High School was named as being in the top 10% of all public high schools in the United States according to U.S. News and World Report. This distinction is an honor for not only Oakmont Regional High School, but the entire District given that the foundation for high school is laid in the elementary and middle school grades.

The 2013-2014 school year is already seeing many positive changes, the most obvious being the opening of the beautiful new John R. Briggs Elementary School. The school is designed and built to be state of the art energy efficient, smooth flowing, safe learning environment. In addition, Oakmont Regional High School has seen repairs to its turf field while Overlook Middle School is sporting a new stone wall. Several rest rooms at Westminster Elementary School have received new floor tiles and the concrete entry pad at Meetinghouse School has replaced the broken crater filled entry pad.

Our administrators and teachers continue to be at work transferring our curriculum over to the Common Core Curriculum which in some instances is already completed. We are also entering the first year of our new teacher evaluation system which is designed to provide the feedback so that our teachers receive the information necessary to make even the best teacher a better teacher. Our I-Pad program has been expanded to cover grades Kindergarten, 1, 2, and 3 district-wide and also included grades 4 and 5 at John R. Briggs Elementary School.
