• Ƶ School Ƶ - Ƶ School Project

    The Ƶ Board of Aldermen approved unanimously in late 2019 to bond $118 million to build a new middle school and renovate two existing middle schools. 

    Last fall Ƶ School Ƶ completed the first phase of a major project to investigate education and infrastructure needs at our three middle schools: Elm Street Ƶ, Fairgrounds Ƶ and Pennichuck Ƶ Schools. The project’s focus is to improve the middle school experience and education for the students of Ƶ at each of the three middle schools. 

    With Phase 1 complete, the Ƶ Board of Education approved building a new middle school rather than renovate Elm Street Ƶ School. The vote was based on the findings of the Ƶ Ƶ Schools 2019 Facility Analysis & Concept Design Report, conducted by Harriman.

    Earlier this year at the beginning of Phase 1 of the project, the Joint Special School Building Committee (JSSBC) hired Harriman of Auburn, Maine as the architectural firm for the project and Harvey Construction of Bedford, New Hampshire as construction manager.

    Harriman’s first task was to evaluate whether it would be more cost effective to renovate the current Elm Street Ƶ School or build a new middle school on property the City of Ƶ owns in southwest Ƶ. Harriman presented its findings in October 2019 and is linked below:
