At the old North Amherst School it became a Head Start Program and a Survival Center around 1995. The Head Start program was a project built by the town of Amherst and Head Start. There is a blue classroom and a yellow classroom. Each classroom can have up to 18 children in it.

The Head Start is a comprehensive child development program which serves children that have to be four by September 1, pregnant women and families. They are child-focused programs and have the overall goal of increasing the school readiness of young children in low-income families.
All the Head Start programs in America help more than 13,000,000 families. Head Start began in 1965.
The National Head Start Association (NHSA) is a private not-for profit membership organization representing the 865,000 children, 180,000 staff and nearly 2,100 Head Start programs in America.
This is a picture of what the school used to look like.
