Stoneham High School Building Project          Stoneham School Building Committee (SSBC)

Welcome to the Stoneham School Building Committee (SSBC) site. This site is dedicated to informing the Stoneham community-at-large about the Stoneham High School building project through timely updates.

Members of the SSBC reached another milestone at their December 16, 2020 meeting, as they 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. 

The Committee’s decision was formally presented to the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) in the Preferred Schematic Report (PSR) which was submitted on December 23, 2020. The MSBA has reviewed the PSR submission and at their February 11, 2021 Board of Directors meeting voted to approve the Town to proceed into the Schematic Design Phase. 

The PSR Submission can be found in the blue ribbon to the left, under MSBA Submissions, or by clicking Preferred Schematic Report (PSR) Submission,  

The SSBC is comprised of municipal employees from the School and Town departments, elected representatives from the Select Board, School Committee and Finance & Advisory Board and citizens with a variety of talents and skills suited to the work of bringing a 21st century high school to the students and community of Stoneham. 

The School Building Committee meetings are open to all and the committee welcomes your attendance and input. If you cannot attend the meeting in person, you can find online versions of the meeting live, on Stoneham TV government channels (Comcast 22, RCN 15 and Verizon 36). You can also view the meetings at any time on in the Stoneham School Building Committee section.
