Stoneham Public Schools and the SSBC invite members of the community to attend a ceremonial groundbreaking for the new Stoneham High School.
The new high school is expected to open in time for the start of the 2024-25 school year after construction begins this summer. More than 80% of voters approved a Proposition 2½ debt exclusion during last fall’s town election, authorizing the financing plan for the new facility.
“This marks a significant step forward for our community and reflects the beginning of a generational commitment to current and future Stoneham students, who will have the opportunity to attend a state-of-the-art facility,” Assistant Superintendent David Ljungberg said. “We are truly grateful to both our community and the MSBA for their support of this critical project.”
The new High School building will be comprised of two wings, connected by Spartan Place on the first floor and a media bridge on the second floor. The east side of the building will house the District Offices, the High School offices, the Pre-Kindergarten Program, with academic classrooms on the second and third floors, a gymnasium with an elevated walking track, and the food service and cafeteria area with access to Spartan Plaza, an outdoor seating area and potential classroom space. The west side of the building will be two stories with a state-of-the-art auditorium, media spaces, music and choral class spaces and maker spaces.
The new High School will be constructed north and east of the existing building.
