Lunenburg High School is ranked 19th in Central Massachusetts according to our GoLocalWorcester list of best schools in the Commonwealth.

School Statistics

Lunenburg outshines several neighboring schools for its proficiency in math, science and English. All of which are in the 90th percentile or greater. However, the SAT scores fall a bit short and are pretty much on par with the state average. The spending per student is below the state average of $13,704. Luneburg High School spends about $10,720 per student. The Student to teacher ratio is in-line with the state average of 15, coming in at 14.7 students per teacher. Lunenburg High also has students from Shirley and Fitchburg.

School Atmosphere

This is Joseph Dillon's first year as principal of Lunenburg High School. He said it is a nice place to work. "There’s a very comfortable feeling at Lunenburg High school among teachers, students, staff and students in general. I think there are clear expectations at Lunenburg around both academic and social behavior expectations that flow from our mission statement .

Extra Curricular Activities 

Dillion said for a school of their size he thinks that there are multiple opportunities for kids. In the area of fine arts they have competitive class plays. They have a wide range of athletic opportunities.  Each class at Lunenburg High School builds a float for homecoming week. It  is really apart of the culture in both the community and the school.

Mission Statement:

"We prepare our students for lifelong learning and responsible community membership. We provide a culture and climate that is safe, personalized and collaborative so that all students become literate, self-directed and reflective individuals who contribute to their communities and effectively transfer learning to new contexts."
