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 is to educate the children to become young adults who are of good character and demonstrate mastery of the knowledge and skills needed to be successful members of our global economy and engaged citizens of the 21st Century.

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.

Congratulations to Hamilton-Wenham Musicians

On Saturday, Nov. 19th members of the Hamilton-Wenham Concert Band traveled to North Andover to audition for Senior Districts. Maya Beach, Ephram Adler, and Aeneas Strozier were selected to participate in districts. In addition to this accomplishment, both Ephram and Aeneas have been asked to audition for All-states in a few weeks. We have some remarkable talented musicians in the HWRSD!

Thank you HW Community!

The annual Stuff-a-Cruiser event at the High School was a huge success again this year thanks to the community's generosity. The event generated over 300 toys for the Shriner’s Hospital for Children and local families in need this holiday season. Thank you for everyone's support!

HW Food Services Recognized by Massachusetts Health Council

On Thursday evening, the Massachusetts Health Council recognized the Hamilton-Wenham Food Program as one of three standout and excellent nutrition programs in the Commonwealth. Ms. Ng, Director of HW Food Services, attended the recognition event. Recommendations to MHC were based on DESE Nutrition Staff feedback. Each school had to share a recipe, IMs. Ng decided to share her chicken tikka masala (yes, she really make this from scratch with all the spices!!) that she and her staff have been putting on the menu at the high school. It was a huge hit amongst the attendees!
