The Northeast Metro Tech School District was formed in an agreement adopted by an overwhelming mandate of the voting populace of 12 Massachusetts communities in 1964. It was originally formed by an informal agreement to work toward a common goal – a regional vocational school offering a variety of vocational and technical courses which no one of the 12 communities could have afforded on its own.
The District stretches from the coast inland to the picturesque Mystic Valley and encompasses about 70 miles of the Commonwealth’s North Shore, stretching into Suffolk, Middlesex and Essex Counties.
