The teachers for the summer schools beyond the peninsula were Miss Ann E. Whipple

These schools were assigned to the charge of Messrs. Hazeltine

for $52.50. The winter terms were to be taught by Norwood Damon
at the Russell, Edward Wyman

, Timothy P. Rogers
at the Gardner, and Miss Ann Whipple
was appointed for the Milk Row school, at the same compensation as was given last winter to a male teacher.
In the annual report Miss Whipple

As Mr. Damon
resigned November 30, Mr.
was put in his place.
The primary school occupied by Ann W. Locke
, having been burned in the late conflagration (Monday, August 31, 1835?), was repaired.
It was voted April 16, 1836, to insert in the next town warrant an article to see whether the town will establish a high school agreeable to sections 5 and 7 of the twenty-third chapter of the Revised Statutes

There were now twelve primary schools with an enrollment of 802 scholars, or nearly sixty-seven on an average for each teacher.
The Male school
had 228, the Female 211, and the Neck schools
, both male and female, 129.
