The five rural towns of Berlin, Calais, East Montpelier, Middlesex and Worcester surround the capital city of Montpelier and unite to form the Washington Central Supervisory Union. Each of the towns has its own elementary school, and those schools send their students to U-32 for grades 7-12. The towns have a total population of approximately 9,765. Residents represent a broad range of educational, economic, and religious backgrounds and our community benefits enormously from their combined energy and talents.
