------------------------------------------
The Metropolitan Council For Educational Opportunity (METCO) was founded in 1966. It is a state funded, voluntary educational desegregation program designed to eliminate racial imbalance through the busing of children from Boston, MA and Springfield, MA to suburban public schools in the 38 communities where the program operates. There are approximately 3,300 children attending suburban schools through the METCO program. Approximately 130 students attend Wayland schools in grades 1 through 12.

*Mission-Our mission is to provide students with educational opportunities designed to enrich their academic, personal and interpersonal experiences.  It is our belief that the METCO experience should provide a strong academic foundation, as well as an environment rich in cultural, educational, ethnic and racial diversity. We are all METCO students and METCO families in a METCO town.
