Superintendent's Message

"A Look Inside WPS" is an opportunity to share with families about life in our schools. We want to bring you closer into the happenings of our classrooms and provide a glimpse of the energy and excitement that is WPS! The stories of our students and the learning provide lots to share. While the year is just underway, I wanted to kick off "A Look Inside WPS" with some pictures from our start of the year.

Have a great weekend. Thank you for your partnership in getting the year off to such a positive beginning. Amber

School News


"We thanked the students for their positive presence, enjoyable energy, and awesome attitude the first few days of school. The seniors led the way with the tradition of displaying their class year on the football field while wearing their home made tie-dye shirts and afterwards enjoying some refreshments together as the Class of '24."

Principal, Brian Callaghan


"From our perspective the first days of school were exceptionally successful and really went smoothly. Our students knew where they were going and what was expected of them and felt safe to ask for help when they were unsure about something. We saw folks out in the halls all day long assisting students and there were many smiles and happy faces on the kids throughout the day."

Principal, Jack Foley



"It has been a pretty remarkable welcome back this year! The entire building feels upbeat, excited, and genuinely ready for the year ahead!"



"Our staff was overjoyed with students arriving and making family connections!"

Principal, John Mendes



"Mill Pond has had an amazing start to the school year! It has been so wonderful to welcome our students and have their energy and their smiles back in the building! Our staff is already engaging them in so many hands-on activities and helping them get into the routines and rituals that make this place great. We can't wait for the year ahead and to truly bring out the joy in learning together!

Community Service


Ranger Give Back Day
-Levi Hansen
Athletic Director

Each year our student athletes participate in "Rangers Give Back". This event is organized by a small number of student-athlete leaders and team captains. This year, those student-leaders were able to mobilize around 200 student-athletes to help out in our community by completing house and landscaping projects for the elderly and at several other locations, working with school administrative assistants, principals, custodians/maintenance staff, and teachers to prepare for the school year, eradicating invasive plants in public space, and much more!

Maui Relief Bake Sales

Staff at Westborough High School came together to hold a charity bake sale to support the Wildfire Recovery Efforts in Maui. Proceeds will be donated to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Over a dozen members of staff supplied homemade sweet and savory treats and the event was generously supported by the whole building.

Several of our other schools are also doing fund raisers to contribute. Throughout the year WPS does numerous fundraisers. Next up, a district wide food drive for the Westborough Food Pantry. Keep your eye out for information!
