Why Marblehead

Exceptional Public & Private Schools

Whether you have school age children or not, you can tell a lot about a community's spirit and character by the quality of its schools. 97% of all graduating high school seniors continue on to college.

Marblehead now boasts a new, state-of-the-art public high school that was dedicated in the fall of 2002. The 215,000 square-foot facility's classrooms, computer and science labs, and a handsome new library were designed in response to today's learning and teaching methods.

The double gymnasium has an indoor track and there are multiple athletic fields including a new football field. The 450-seat stadium-style auditorium has a thrust stage and serves as an intimate performance space and lecture hall. The building features commissioned art, large windows to admit natural light, as well as large public areas.

The new high school was the first phase of the school building improvement plan. The original high school has undergone major renovations to give the town a new upper middle school for grades 7 and 8. The existing middle school is being renovated and updated to serve as the lower middle school for grades 5 & 6.

Marblehead Middle School has been honored by the U.S. Department of Education as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. As an active volunteer in the schools, I am especially pleased to have served as Co-Chairman of the Middle School's Site-Based Management Team.

In addition, Marblehead's public school system includes two K-2 elementary schools, three K-4 schools, and a public charter school for grades 5-8. I'd be pleased to send you a customized Marblehead public school report. Just send me an e-mail or give me a call.

The town is also home to two private schools: Cohen Hillel Academy (kindergarten through grade 8) and Tower School (pre-kindergarten through grade 9). Marblehead also has a variety of private nursery schools and after school programs.

Marblehead belongs to the North Shore Vocational High School area. North Shore Community College has campuses in nearby Lynn as well as in Beverly and Danvers. Salem State College is located right across the town line, and Endicott College and Gordon College are both a short ride away.

Plus there is easy access to the many fine colleges and universities in Boston and Cambridge. Interestingly, Marblehead was considered as a potential site for Harvard University. However, the founders chose that other town!
