History

The Blue Hills Regional School District was formed on December 17, 1963, to serve the needs of member towns’ residents. The District originally included Avon, Braintree, Canton, Holbrook, Norwood, Randolph and Westwood; Dedham and Milton joined in 1987.

The District School Committee was then authorized by the towns to establish and maintain educational programs at the secondary, post-secondary and adult levels in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 74 of the General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The school opened in September 1966. Its immediate success, coupled with increasing admissions, necessitated the building of additional facilities. Moreover, local employers needed more employees specially trained in certain areas.

By 1976, the building was expanded to house adult education programs.

Much has changed at Blue Hills since we first opened our doors in 1966, but our commitment to giving each student the highest-caliber academic and vocational education possible remains as steadfast as it was four decades ago. Our administrators and teachers dedicate themselves to preparing these exceptional young men and women for a productive future no matter what path they choose after graduation from Blue Hills – further education, entering the workforce, or a career in the military. We’re very proud to play a role in their success.

We truly consider ourselves a team and a family. Come experience the Blue Hills spirit!
