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.

The Stoneham School Building Committee is excited to announce that the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) Board of Directors, at the August 25, 2021 meeting, voted to approve the new Stoneham High School project and an estimated grant of $49.0 million to help fund the project. This approval from the MSBA brings the Town one step closer to replacing the existing high school with a brand-new facility equipped to support Stoneham's 21st Century educational curriculum.  

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 total project cost is $189.6 million and the MSBA will reimburse the Town approximately $49.0 million. The estimated cost to Stoneham is $140.6 million. The Town will be asked to approve the project funding at the Fall Town Meeting on October 4, 2021, and to approve a Debt Exclusion vote on November 2, 2021.

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.
