Plymouth Public Schools
The Town of Plymouth is located in the southeast corner of Massachusetts near the entrance to Cape Cod and within easy driving distance to Boston and Providence.
Living less than an hour from two of the largest urban centers in New England, area residents are within reach of numerous educational, social, cultural and economic opportunities. Many of the country’s finest colleges and universities are within this geographic area.
The community, with a population of approximately 60,000, boasts an outstanding Philharmonic Orchestra, an award-winning Public Library, a junior college, a variety of community-based college extension programs, Pilgrim and Children’s Museums, a community Art Guild and permanent gallery, and full recreational programs.
The Plymouth Public Schools serve approximately 8,000 students of diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds in eight elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools. One of the high schools is a comprehensive academic vocational school. In addition, Plymouth offers a developmental preschool, before and after school programs, wrap around childcare programs, Virtual High School and summer school.
Plymouth students have won awards in a variety of academic and extracurricular areas in regional, state, and national competitions.
The system has developed and begun implementing a long-range technology plan. As a result of the plan, all of our schools have high-speed internet connectivity with a ratio of approximately 2 to 1 (students to computers). Technology professional development is offered at all levels. A commitment to inclusive, student-centered classrooms reflects the district’s goal of excellence for all students. Specialists in math, science, social studies, English language arts, technology and health provide curriculum support and a strong staff development program reflecting current state and national education standards.
In addition to an excellent instructional program, all of the elementary schools offer a range of enrichment programs in visual arts, physical education, and music. Numerous remedial, enrichment and community-based programs serve to enhance the elementary programs. The also schools have active parent-teacher associations and school councils.
The elementary school grade configuration is either K-4 or K-5. The middle schools serve grades 5-8, and the high schools serve grades 9-12.
