"Working Together To Engage Every Learner"
Serving the New Hampshire communities of Proximity to Boston, the Atlantic shoreline, the Lakes Region and White Mountains provides atypical access to an array of cultural and educational resources. The Oyster River Cooperative School District, established in 1954 and having celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2004, is one of the oldest cooperative districts in the state. From its small beginning serving 661 students in one facility, the district has grown to just over 2000 students educated in four schools. While the district is made up of three separate towns, it is a single political unit that operates under the rules of RSA 40:13. This means that the district votes by official ballot rather than the traditional "town meeting" form of government. All of the registered voters in the three communities make up the legislative body that elects a seven-member school board to govern the district.
The Oyster River Cooperative School District has a long history of providing excellent educational opportunities for its students. The Oyster River community is committed to and supportive of quality education. This commitment and support have helped the district recruit and maintain an excellent teaching staff and outstanding administrative leadership team.
