In a letter posted recently on the Westborough School Department's website, Superintendent Anne Towle said the town's students are expected to be the most diverse ever in the upcoming year.
Around 12 percent of Westborough students do not speak English as their first language, said the letter, which also discussed Towle's thoughts on other subjects related to the upcoming school year.
Around seven percent have limited English proficiency. Minorities make up a fifth of total students. Towle said the diversity would improve students' understanding of the greater world.
An estimated 3,560 students will attend Westborough Public Schools on the first day of school on Wednesday, August 27.
