The District serves a varied demographic population that is both urban (Penacook) and rural (Andover, Boscawen Loudon, Salisbury, and Webster). Geographically, each town in the Merrimack Valley School District is less than an hour from Boston, the Lakes Region, the White Mountains, and the Atlantic seacoast. As part of the Capital Region, the school is afforded opportunities to access cultural activities, institutions of higher learning, and other valuable enrichment opportunities.
