The Easthampton Public Schools are located in the heart of the Pioneer Valley in Western Massachusetts, in a community that offer a range of industries, a beautiful boardwalk surrounding Nashawannuck Pond, and an active rail trail.
The community has evolved from a rural farming village to a flourishing mill town and now to a vibrant and diverse city with a wealth of artists, retail shops, award-winning restaurants, and numerous recreational opportunities. Our old mill buildings, once bustling with manufacturing enterprises, now buzz with the excitement of creative and cultural activities. From the lively boardwalk, to the bike path, residents and visitors are afforded diverse opportunities for leisure and entertainment. Easthampton has become a model small city of the 21st century by retaining its mill town soul but committing to foster innovation. Community members treasure the abundant resources, dynamic downtown, and vibrant neighborhoods, which make our community such a great place to live.
The schools are part of the rich, diverse culture found in Easthampton. We currently have three elementary schools – Center, Pepin and Maple that educate all of our students through the 4th Grade. Students then move on to White Brook Middle School for grades 5-8th, followed by the Easthampton High School, housing grades 9-12th. In September of the 2021, all PK-8 students will move into one large elementary/middle school to be built on the grounds of the current White Brook School property. This opportunity will allow us to foster a more inclusive setting for all of our young students, providing for unique experiences and programs. We are excited to see what the future holds!
