Hello and thanks for the question. The Easton School system has an excellent reputation. Renovations and upgrades have been recently done at both the Oliver Ames High School as well as the Junior High. Two newer beautiful elementary schools were built recently in town. They are the Frederick Law Olmsted School, along with its sister school, H. H. Richardson, which are the two public schools in Easton for students in grades 4 through 6. F. L. Olmsted School currently enrolls about 500 students. The school is named in honor of the founder of American landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903), who designed the Rockery in Easton as well as numerous parks in other cities. The H. H. Richardson School currently enrolls about 400 students. The school is named in honor of the famous architect, Henry Hobson Richardson (1838-1886), who designed several important buildings in Easton as well as many in other cities. Oliver Ames High School is the public high school for Easton, Massachusetts. The school currently enrolls approximately 770 students in grades 10 through 12. Oliver Ames offers Advanced Placement, honors, college preparatory, business, and standard programs, as well as electives in the visual and performing arts, business and industrial arts, and home economics. Students' test records are above the average state and national levels and many of its students score high marks on Advanced Placement tests.

Good morning Lisa:

Great information for you in the past few responses. My wife was on the school committee for many years, my two daughters graduated from the system and are doing very well. Easton has been behind other Towns in funding education operations for many years , but recently passed a proposition 2 1/2 override to increase funding. When you are in Town call me and I will give you a tour of the new High school addition.

Hi Lisa,
Looks like you got all the technical end of the question answered. I was a resident of Easton up until 4 years ago when I moved to sunny Florida. I was a student in Easton and graduated Oliver Ames back in 1980. My sons both went to the Easton Schools. My elder son went right through his sophomore year in Oliver Ames and my younger son through 7th grade in FL Olmstead. The education that I received was excellent. The education my sons received was great. The school system was going through some major changes but the education still was shining. Easton in general is a wonderful town to raise your children in. The sports are strong in and out of school, the town is safe with very little crime and close to all major highways. If you decide to make Easton your home you will not be disappointed. (Shame my mother's house just sold)

Best of luck to you and your family,
Linda J Sears

Hi Lisa,
Easton has a very good school system. In fact, CNN published an article on “Best Places to Live -Top 100”, and Easton was rated #48. The focus of the communities they listed were smaller places that "offered the best combination of economic opportunity, good schools, safe streets, things to do and a real sense of community". I have attached a link for your review.

I hope this is helpful!
