New Swampscott Elementary School Design Meeting Thursday

The public forum will be held Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Middle School library.


The School Building Committee is proud to announce the Schematic Design and other elements for the new, district-wide grades 1-4 Elementary School for Swampscott. 

We look forward to having Town Meeting Members, and the public at-large view the plans for this great step forward for education in Swampscott. 

  • To present the Schematic Design we are holding a public forum on Thursday, March 13th, 7:00pm at the Middle School library
  • Please join us.  We can't ask enough.  Please join us and invite your neighbors.  This is your tax dollars at work for education and community. 

 During this meeting we will present important elements of the project:  traffic / parking study and plans; security plans, neighborhood flooding mitigation plan; energy efficiency plans, park and recreational plans, and much more.

"The Committee and our partners have done a great job in moving this project forward.  Now it’s time for the public to witness the future of education in Swampscott,” said SBC chairman Joe Crimmins.  Added Pamela Angelakis, Superintendent of Schools, “the feedback from the teaching staff has been one of excitement and educational opportunity. Our teachers are confident that having one building for the important elementary school years has endless educational and social advantages." 

If you have any questions please contact any member of the SBC or email, swampscottesproject@swampscott.k12.ma.us.  Updated information about the project may be found at the school district website, www.swampscott.k12.ma.us.

I think the voting will be very close just like the high school which passed by a couple hundred votes because they tied in the Senior center. The demographics have changed and we have new young people in town that like the word s p e n d and t a x....

I guess you can fight town hall and win! Congrats to the Greenwood Ave residents on winning their court case of " Spot zoning"

The school department didn't have money for librarians until this year and now they found enough money to bus the elementry kids to school if we build? What a caveat... Mr Ford, not everyone can leave work early or late to pick up their children. 550.00 dollar tax increase for 20 years plus prop 2 over rides? I guess we will be the most expensive place to live on the North Shore. I don't think redoing Humphrey Street will attract enough businesses to make any difference...

I agree with Louis let us remember we can do all of the upgrades to Humphrey Street however if a business cannot sustain itself thru sales then what is the point. These committee's that are formed have tunnel vision they only see their quest regardless of the consequences. Same for the building committee why does every building have to cost millions and millions, upwards of $20milion++++ for 4 elementary classes is crazy. I want to see how the $500,000.00 was spent that is a lot of money. Stop trying to outdo other towns and get real, Swampscott is not as rich a town as you like to believe take a look at the list of unpaid RE Taxes etc. Get back to reality the days of money galore are over we all trying to keep our heads above water...
