About

The Hamilton-Wenham Regional School District offers an excellent education to approximately 1,684 students in preschool through grade 12. The district is home to a High School for grades 9-12, a middle school for grades 6-8, and three elementary schools for students in preschool through Grade 5. The Mission of the HWRSD: 

Together we inspire continuous learning in order to lead a purposeful life

The towns of Hamilton and Wenham are located just 22 miles north of Boston on the North Shore of Massachusetts and provide easy access to the Atlantic seashore with its reservations, beaches, and boating just miles away. Both towns have retained unique historic small-town character with miles of rural scenery with extensive open space, farmlands, lakes, and woodlands. Hamilton and Wenham share the school system, library, recreation department, and commuter rail station.

Speaker Series Flyer "Media Literacy"

We all consume and share media; increasingly, many of us are content creators. Our access to the vast majority of information, whether social, cultural, political, economic, or scientific, is not acquired directly through first-hand experience, rather it is mediated by others. How do we evaluate information and sources in our everyday lives?

Our panel of speakers brings a wealth of expertise and experience to help us explore this critical topic: Erin McNeill, CEO and Founder of MediaLiteracyNow.org, Paul Mihailidis, professor of civic media and journalism at Emerson College, and Jean LaBelle-Pierce, librarian and social studies teacher in the Maynard public schools.

Updated Lunch Menus for the HWRSD

You may have noticed a change in our lunch menus... Our school menus are available online through MealViewer, an interactive platform for students, parents, and staff. MealViewer is available through our district website and has a mobile app for each school. It allows families to view individual school menus, allergens, nutrition information, and even gives students the ability to rate the school’s food! Parents can personalize the app by setting allergens, and the app will display an alert when these allergens are present in that day’s menu. You can find the User Guide with more information on our website
