    M.E.T.C.O. Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity is a state-funded educational program designed to eliminate racial imbalance through the busing of children from Boston and Springfield to public systems in surrounding suburban metropolitan communities.

    The METCO Program is open to all children of African American, Latino, Asian and Native American descent who reside in the City of Boston and volunteer to participate.

    The Newton METCO Program is comprised of a diverse group of students from broad ethnic, cultural, economic and religious backgrounds possessing a range of educational strengths and needs. Newton's METCO program is the largest, maintaining a targeted enrollment of 431 students (3.4%).  Students are enrolled in all 21 schools, in Kindergarten
    through Grade 12.

    Enrollment into the Program begins at the METCO, Inc. office at 40 Dimock Street in Roxbury.
    The Newton METCO Program does NOT accept registration application, referrals or transfers. 

Upcoming Events

  • Due to the impending snow storm this afternoon, Newton Transportation has arranged a bus route schedule for today only for the High schools.


    This includes an early dismissal of 1:30pm from North only for the Boston students. This will help in getting all the Boston students home before the roads are at their worst.


    As with early release days our Boston METCO high school buses have crowding issues, as a result Eastern Bus will be providing a third bus for the high school Boston kids.
