8th Grade News

Next Tuesday, 8th grade students will meet with high school students and teachers to get a glimpse of exciting things happening in grades 9-12 at MTRS.

8th graders also have the opportunity to choose a vocational/technical high school education at the school preferred by their town of residence. 8th grade students will be given the option to attend brief presentations hosted by Franklin County Technical School on Thursday 10/28 and Smith Vocational on Friday 10/29.

Preferred Vocational/Technical School

Franklin Tech

Buckland

Shelburne

Colrain

Heath

Hawley

Charlemont

Franklin Tech or Smith Vocational

Ashfield

Rowe

Plainfield


If the town’s preferred school does not offer the shop program that the student intends to study, the student may apply to a different vocational/technical school that does offer that shop. A student’s ability to attend a non-preferred vocational/technical high school is based upon approval of Mohawk Trail and Hawlemont Regional School Districts Superintendent, Sheryl Stanton.
