    Londonderry is committed to providing the very best educational environment for our students and teachers. Londonderry School District provides opportunities for teachers to pursue professional improvement and enhance teaching skills through generous tuition-reimbursement programs and paid, school-sponsored workshops. With many extra-curricular activities, teachers have the opportunity to serve as advisors and coaches. We pride ourselves on our excellent teaching staff. Our schools have an outstanding reputation including the ongoing recognition of the acclaimed Lancers Marching Band and Color Guard.
    What kind of quality assurance is in place for consistent delivery of curriculum from one classroom to the next?
    Grade level benchmarks are established for all subjects and teachers are encouraged to challenge students to excel at the highest levels.
    What is the Londonderry Community like?
    Londonderry is a rapidly-growing suburban community of 24,000 residents located approximately 12 miles from the Massachusetts border, less than one hour from Boston, the seacoast and the White Mountains. A popular residential community because of its ideal location, Londonderry has a reputation for excellent schools. Its residents attempt to maintain the rural flavor of the town, which is dotted with apple orchards and lovely homes. The community has demonstrated its support for schools through various fundraising and volunteer activities. The focus of the community is on its young people and their welfare.
