I lived in Sherborn for 11 years…my kids basically grew up there, with my son starting out at Pine Hill Elementary in first grade, and graduating from the high school in 2013. I may be biased, but Sherborn is a great place to raise a family. Incorporated in 1674, until more recently Sherborn was a farming community. Now it is primarily a “bedroom” community of just over 4,000 residents. Located approximately 25 miles from downtown Boston, many residents commute into the city or to areas along the hi-tech corridor of Rt. 128.
Sherborn has a single elementary school, and combines with the neighboring town of Dover (population 5,600) for middle and high school. The Dover-Sherborn Regional High School is consistently ranked as one of the top high schools in the greater Boston area, often coming in at the #1 spot.
Sherborn has a rural feel, with working farms and horse farms a common sight. The town has a small town center with a restaurant, a gas station, two wine stores, a Walgreen’s and a Dunkin’ Donuts, among other things. There are also three churches, a library and a community center which can be rented out for events. The town also has a hidden gem in Farm Pond, a small, pristine body of water that is available to residents. Sailing lessons and a swim team, along with a sandy beach with lifeguards make this a popular place in the summer. The town is also home to numerous trails, including Rocky Narrows, part of the Trustees of Reservations properties.
