Public Hearing on the Waltham High School Project is Monday, May 8, 2017 - Agenda
The purpose of this website is to inform the Waltham community about where we stand in the MSBA process, why we believe we need a new or renovated high school, and where we are with the educational vision/plan should we be invited into the feasibility and design study, as well as other important details.The mantra of the school department has been “One Waltham.” We are one community and we are excited and inspired to deliver to this community one state of the art high school that provides an enriching, project-based education that prepares all students for college, career and the demands of the 21st century.
We would like to call your attention to two important documents.
The first is the education plan for a new or renovated high school. The MSBA process starts with educational visioning because it must serve as the driver of all future decisions related to design and site location. We are proud of our educational plan and believe it is bold, ambitious and will better prepare ALL of our students for the demands of college, career and community. It was a community effort to draft this document. We believe this education plan is a game-changer for education in the City of Waltham. You can find the Waltham High School educational plan at this link: https://goo.gl/G9CguR. We encourage all member of the community to read it carefully as it will likely be the most important tool the School Building Committee uses to evaluate the final three options as described in the Preliminary Design Program (PDP) report to the MSBA.
The Waltham School Committee and the Waltham School Building Committee hosted three public hearings to garner feedback from the community about the education plan and about the three concepts that were submitted to the MSBA in the PDP.
