In AVRTHS” region, Region Four, are schools and colleges from New York, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire. AVRTHS is the only school from Massachusetts to be recognized in the top 25.

“Josh Morin and I are very proud of the work that our students do here at Assabet Valley,” said Paul Airoldi, lead instructor in the program, “and of the support we get from the School Committee and Administration. We'se submitted a video for the final portion of the competition, and are hoping to be named the top school in our region, and then in the nation. It would be quite an honor.”
