Acton, MA Town Government Site

The Acton Boxborough Public School District consists of six elementary schools. Acton/Boxborough implements the "Open Enrollment" process to assign students to elementary schools. First-time incoming kindergarten parents participate in a lottery-based selection process where the parents "choose" the school by listing their preferences in ranked order. This method of school choice has a large impact on the nature of the district. As a result, Acton is less oriented around neighborhoods than other towns which have neighborhood based schools. Other child-oriented activities such as town sport teams are also based on community-wide participation. As a result, students and families are likely to have social connections that are independent of their neighborhood.
