The Stoneham School Building Committee (SSBC) will provide a presentation to members of the business community on the status of the Feasibility Study for the new Stoneham High School project, with an overview of the process, design, cost and timeline.
Over the past few years, the Stoneham School Building Committee (SSBC) has overseen the Stoneham High School building project and most recently voted on a preferred option for the future Stoneham High School. After discussing all options and considering community feedback from two public surveys and four Community forums, the members voted to adopt option 4B – the construction of a new three-story building on the south east corner of the high school property at 149 Franklin Street, as the preferred option.
The proposed building will include all of the expected areas – i.e., classrooms, cafeteria, a gymnasium and a 600-seat auditorium – and exciting new areas including maker spaces, collaboration areas, pre-k learning center, turf athletic fields, a dedicated Community Presentation space, and walking paths, all of which will provide learning and recreational opportunities for everyone in the community. The building will be constructed to be Zero Net Energy compliant, which will not only conserve natural resources but will ultimately reduce the cost of energy used by the building.
