Welcome to Winchester
Winchester is a small suburban town located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, eight miles north of downtown Boston. It is the 7th wealthiest municipality in Massachusetts and functions largely as a community for professionals who work in the greater Boston area. Winchester has five elementary schools (Ambrose, Lincoln, Lynch, Muraco, and Vinson-Owen) and one middle school, McCall Middle School. Considered one of Boston’s elite public high schools, Winchester High School was founded in 1850. Winchester public schools have achieved superior performances on the MCAS exams since their inception, and the district is consistently ranked by editorial reviews such as Boston Magazine as one of the best in Massachusetts. The Winchester High School sports teams are known as the “Sachems,” and are a part of the Middlesex league for sports.
