About Hopkinton

  • Hopkinton, one of Massachusetts’ largest towns geographically, is also one of the state’s fastest growing communities. This record-breaking growth has been influenced by Hopkinton’s proximity to Worcester, Boston, and Providence, Rhode Island, and its easy accessibility to Routes 495, 9, and the Massachusetts Turnpike. The rural beauty and friendly small-town character of Hopkinton has been preserved as the town’s industrial base has changed from agriculture to computer, science, and biotechnology. Best known as the starting place for the Boston Marathon, Hopkinton is located twenty-six miles west of downtown Boston.
     
    Hopkinton has five schools as part of our public school district.  Center School for grades K-1, Elmwood School for grades 2-3, Hopkins School for grades 4-5, Hopkinton Middle School for grades 6-8, and Hopkinton High School for grades 9-12. Hopkinton Integrated Preschool is located in the Elmwood Elementary School.
