Our Heath School Districts

Heath students are part of the Mohawk Trail Regional School District (MTR2Districts8Towns_thumb.jpgSD) which encompasses eight towns. The Heath elementary school is Colrain Central School and the High School is Mohawk Trail Regional High School.

For students who want specific technical programs Franklin County Technical School (FCTS) is a 4-year, public high school. Admission is through application and an acceptance process.

"The Mohawk Trail and Hawlemont School Districts have engaged Berkshire Educational Resources K12 (BERK12) to complete a thorough sustainability study that ultimately will present the Districts, their member towns, and their communities with ideas about the educational, financial, and operational future of the Districts. For this work to be successful, we need your help!"
