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.
Stoneham High was approved to move forward in the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) process in the fall of 2018. The SSBC was then appointed to oversee the important steps toward a new school environment for our future high schoolers, thanks to the voters who approved the expenditure of funds for the required Feasibility Study at the Annual Town Meeting held on May 6, 2019.
In December, 2019, the MSBA, which will provide Stoneham a grant of up to 52.06% of the Feasibility Study costs, invited Stoneham into their grant program to develop a cost effective, sustainable and educationally appropriate solution to the aging Stoneham High School. In April 2020, the SSBC hired Symmes Maini & McKee Associates (SMMA) of Cambridge, MA to manage the Feasibility Study process, serving as the Owner’s Project Manager and in June 2020, Perkins and Will was hired as the Architect. As work continues, the Committee - assisted by SMMA and Perkins and Will - will investigate renovation, renovation and addition, and new construction options.
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 https://www.stonehamtv.org/ondemand in the Stoneham School Building Committee section.

The SSBC hosted eight (8) Visioning sessions to virtually bring together a group of Stoneham High School stakeholders to use innovation and future thinking to explore, discuss and influence the best possible solution for an extraordinary facility. The eight sessions occurred over a two week period starting on July 20, 2020.
