Notable alumni


The school is a member of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association. It is classified as District D and a part of the Midland Wachusett League. The school mascot is the Blue Knight.

After allegations of racism against its football program in 2013, the school cancelled the rest of the season.[6][7] Teammates were initially suspected of spray painting racist slurs on a biracial player's house, but police and the FBI later investigated the player's mother, and the students were vindicated of any wrongdoing. After an investigation, Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr. stated that "evidence presented to us fails to demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that a crime has been committed," but that the case remains open. [8] The family later admitted to falsifying the crime in order to switch their son to a school district with a more robust football program. As a result, the Lunenburg football team missed out on the season for no reason.
