Bolton is part of the Nashoba Regional School District which includes the towns of Stow and Lancaster. The Florence Sawyer School and Emerson Wing is Bolton’s elementary school serving grades K-8, and Bolton students attend high school along with Stow and Lancaster students at Nashoba Regional High School, located in Bolton. Both schools enjoy excellent teachers, strong school leadership, challenging academic programs, and a high degree of parental involvement.

Last year, NRHS was picked by Newsweek as one of the best high schools in the country based on how hard school staff work to challenge students with advanced-placement college-level courses and tests. Just over 1.600 schools—only 6 percent of all the public schools in the U.S.—made the list.
