Take a short train ride out of Boston and you'll find yourself in a recreation wonderland of ponds, lakes, rivers, and forests. Winchester offers canoeing, sailing, cross-country skiing, fishing, ice-skating, bicycling, and horseback riding at its Mystic Lakes, Winter Pond, Winchester Trails, and Middlesex Falls Reservation. Plus, Winchester is one of the best school districts in arguably the very best education state.
Looking for an elementary school? Muraco Elementary School — named after a local veteran who died in Vietnam — offers a Multicultural Fair and outdoor exploratory classes. McCall Middle School has an enviable 15.9 to one student-teacher ratio to maintain the focus of hormone-hassled teens and tweeners. Winchester High School provides "Family Dinners" for pupils and parents at downtown restaurants, plus an exceptionally active music department. Indeed, if the Winchester air seems particularly harmonious, it may be because cellist Yo-Yo Ma lives here with his family.
