From The Boston Globe: Natick, Mass., voters have overwhelmingly approved a new $89 million high school and a $10 million community-senior center. The vote showed residents’ willingness to replace two dilapidated buildings: the circa-1954 Natick High School and the circa-1956 elementary school that houses the senior center. Both buildings are plagued by leaking roofs and inefficient heating systems.
AUGUST 2009 from The Boston Globe: The Natick (Mass.) School Committee has voted to enter into negotiations with the architecture firm Ai3 to design the new Natick High School. Ai3 was ranked first by the town's High School Building Committee and now must show that it can adapt its standard high school design to fit Natick's educational needs and the requirements of the school site. The School Committee vote followed hours of discussion that included observations on Whitman-Hanson Regional High School, the basis for the Ai3 design.
