Are there any communities in the Boston area that have a standard combined K-8 public school system which then empties into one large high school? I know this is the format Brookline uses, but I was wondering if there were any others close to Boston. I prefer these types of schools for my child.

Parsec,

If I read your post right, I think you are saying you want a town with the same school(s) going all the way from K-8 instead of having a separate middle school.

There are very few towns that have that kind of structure. Brookline is an exception. I would look into very small school systems/districts such as Dover, Carlisle, Berlin, Boxborough, Harvard and Lincoln. Most of them only have one school going from K to 6-8 grade. Then, they go into a regional high school.

So much for moving to closer to Boston. There is always a private school option.

These schools all have middle schools; Boxborough, for example, goes to 6th grade. Then for 7th and 8th it joins with Acton for Junior High. Then the combined high school is 9-12.

That's really the norm here. Even for small districts -- the ones on this list go through 6th, then merge with a neighboring town for junior high, then hen high school. On Cape Cod there are some with K-8 schools, but that's almost 2 hours from Boston.

You are right about Boxborough and Dover. However, I just check Berlin, Carlisle, Harvard and Lincoln. They all have one school.

Berlin, Berlin Memorial K-6; Tahanto Reg High 7-12.
Carlisle, Carlisle school K-8; Concord Carlisle 9-12.
Harvard - Harvard elementary K-5; Bromfield 6-12
Lincoln (unless Hanscom) - Lincoln School K-8; Lincoln Sudbury 9-12
