Hemenway Elementary School
Built in the 1960s, Hemenway Elementary is named after Framingham's first school headmaster, Deacon Joshua Hemenway.
Located in the Nobscot section of Framingham, Hemenway Elementary's focus is a multiple intelligence school. Teachers have taken courses on and studied Howard Gardner's 1983 multiple intelligence theory and incorporated his theories in its teachings.
Framingham Public Schools currently allow school choice among elementary schools.
Hemenway Elementary Principal is Lucia Laguarda. The school houses a couple of special needs programs. About one in every five students receives special-education services.
PTO meetings are usually on the first Thursday of each month in the school library. The PTO funds many programs and hosts popular game and Dr. Seuss nights.
