    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.
