MS School Building Project
BMS Tour March 2020
Why Does Walpole Need a New Middle School?
Built in the 1960's, both Bird and Johnson Middle Schools are near the end of their functional life, with structural and system deficiencies, a layout that does not support programmatic requirements, and 21st Century Learning (critical and creative thinkers - collaboration, communication). The middle schools no longer support the adequate delivery of education and programming needs to the students in Walpole.
While the MSBA accepted the proposal to replace the Bird Middle School, the resulting building project will be for a combined middle school that will accomodate the student population of both Bird and Johnson.
