A Community Working Together to Build a Better Somerville High School

The City of Somerville is building a new Somerville High School at the site of the existing one, using funds obtained locally and through a grant by the Massachusetts School Building Authority. The new campus will provide a state-of-the-art, innovative, and nurturing learning environment to SHS students for decades to come, and will serve as a premier community resource and gathering space.
