History of BMS
Lloyd G. Blanchard Middle school is named for a long-time educator and town resident.  Mr. Blanchard graduated from Dartmouth then he received a Masters of Education from Harvard.  Before Westford,  he was a teacher and administrater in Connecticut.  Mr. Blanchard came to Westford in the Spring of 1957 and remained here as Superintendent until his retirement June 1982.  He was Westford's Superintendent of Schools for twenty-five years!!  Both the Norman E. Day and Robinson schools were built during his tenure.  In 1957, 38 students graduated from Westford Academy (housed in Abbot), and 25 years later 241 students graduated (1982) from the "new" Westford Academy.  Mr. Blanchard was a caring educator who was concerned with the differences of each individual student.  This realization directed his attention to middle level education.  In starting a middle school, he focused on the unique developmental, social, emotional, and intellectual needs of this population.
