Welcome To The Nahant School Department

The Johnson Elementary School, 290 Castle Road Nahant, Massachusetts

The Nahant School Department offers programs ranging from preschool through sixth grade at the Johnson School. In addition, we have tuition agreements for our children to continue their education for grades seven through twelve in the Town of Swampscott.

The Johnson School community provides educational excellence in a safe, nurturing environment that challenges students to meet their potential and to become critical thinkers and self-directed life-long learners.

Posted April 15, 2021:
There is a vacancy on the Nahant School Committee due to a member's resignation. As there is not sufficient time for this position to be on the ballot for Town Elections, the position will be appointed via a joint meeting of the School Committee and the Board of Selectmen. The appointee will serve until the next Town Election (2022), when the seat will be on the ballot. Any individual interested in serving on the Nahant School Committee is encouraged to contact the chair, Lauren Sherlock, via email (, or phone (978-273-7467).  A letter of interest and resume are due by 5pm on 4/27/21.
