About Acton, MA (01720):
Acton is a very desirable community for so many reasons! It is located about 21 miles west of Boston along Route 2 with a commuter rail stop (South Acton Station) along the MBTA Fitchburg line and is well known for its excellent schools. In fact, it has been ranked by Money Magazine as the 11th best community in the United States to live. Read the complete article here
Acton is about five miles (8 km) from I-495 and ten miles (16 km) from I-95/Route 128. Routes 2, 2A, 27, 62, 111, and 119 run through town.
Acton offers 'open enrollment' within each of its five elementary schools. While the curriculum is quite similar in all schools, each has a slightly different teaching philosophy. Parents can select the one they feel is best for their child. Since school attendance is not based solely on neighborhoods, and town sports teams are not organized around school enrollment, there tends to be greater socialization beyond a given neighborhood.
