Schools in Massachusetts, North of Boston
In an effort to provide safe settings and tremendous opportunities to each student, Newburyport Public Schools are known for implementing high standards and expectations in academics, athletics and community involvement.
To promote and achieve excellence in these areas, the Newburyport Public School District engages the entire Greater Newburyport community in the education process, which over the last several years has been refreshed to include many well-defined goals and several new programs.
Together, all continue to strive for improvement, not only academically, but in wellness and health through clear direction, top leadership and planning. This includes a fantastic strategy to build and support the community, such as improving the students’ connection to Newburyport, and parents’ connection to the schools.
As stated in the introduction letter for the Newburyport Public Schools FY09 Strategic Plan regarding the district’s recent reconfiguration, “In this midst of this redefinition, the staff and administration embarked on several new programs. They instituted a new literacy program, where teachers began learning and implemented new techniques for instruction and assessment of literacy, especially at the younger grade levels. The District also began study and training toward creating an inclusionary instructional philosophy and practice.”
Today, there are five schools in the Newburyport Public Schools system that benefit from this comprehensive strategy including the Newburyport High School (grades 9-12), Rupert A. Nock Middle School (grades 6-8), Edward G. Molin Upper Elementary (grades 4-5), the NEW Francis T. Bresnahan (grades 1-3) and Early Development (grades PK-K).
