Local Schools

Early education in the towns of Effingham, Ossipee, Tuftonboro and Wolfeboro begins in their hometown elementary schools. All the elementary schools are part of the Governor Wentworth School District, also known as SAU 49.

Finishing elementary grades means students then move on to Kingwood Regional Middle School located in the town of Wolfeboro at the edge of Lake Winnipesaukee. From there they move just across the parking lot to Kingswood Regional High School or Region 9 Vocation Technical- Education Center.

The schools take advantage of the natural beauty and recreational opportunities of the area with outdoor playgrounds and programs that offer skiing or snowboarding days at King Pine Ski area for Ossipee and Effingham students or at Abenaki Ski Area for Wolfeboro and Tuftonboro students.

Children from Albany, Bartlett, Conway, Freedom, Jackson, Madison and Tamworth also start their educational years in hometown elementary schools. These students then move on to school district SAU #9 also known as the Kennett School System. Middle School students and High School students enjoy a wide variety of sports around the Mount Washington Valley.

Sandwich children begin their educational years at Sandwich Central School (link to http://www.inter-lakes.k12.nh.us/scs/ ) At 7th grade they then move onto Interlakes Middle and High Schools in Meredith where they enjoy the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee and docks in Meredith Bay.
