Weymouth is a unique town with a lot of history. It is convenient to the city, right off the highway, and easily accessible. While it has a mayor, it is still considered a town with a town council. Our students need role models of color that can encourage them to set high expectations regardless of race, gender, religion, special needs, socioeconomics, etc.

WPS has changed from 6% students of color to 25% in the last 15 years; 400+ ELL; 40+ languages

Q: What’s Weymouth like to work and/or live in?
Weymouth is a great community to work and live in.  It is close to the city and has become more diverse than some of the surrounding towns.  Houses are more affordable as well.
