Welcome to the district homepage of the Belchertown Public Schools’ web site.  Belchertown is located in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, has one of the largest land areas in the Commonwealth, and borders part of the Quabbin Reservoir, one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the country. Belchertown is considered a "semi-rural" community with scenic landscape,with an estimated population of approximately 14,000. We have approximately 2600 students enrolled in five schools.

 Built on CORE values of respect, responsibility and relationships, all Belchertown school age children and young people regardless of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, national origin, immigration status, sexual orientation, or disability are welcome in the Belchertown Public Schools.  As a School System, we strive to provide a dynamic, rigorous learning experience in a safe and caring enviornment where each student is valued as an individual within our schools' community.  We respect that each student's life creates its own story through family, friends, education and experiences, thus, the Belchertown Public Schools create challenging learning opportunities for students to apply their skills, creativity and knowledge, stretch themselves and become resilient citizens in an ever changing world.  We are grounded in the belief that every student's story contributes to the vibrancy of our school community making it a colorful and rich tapestry.
