Central Middle School was built in 1894
From The Boston Globe: Built in 1894, Central Middle School in Quincy, Mass., long ago gave the city its money’s worth. But replacing the worn-out school with a new one, as some have proposed, is raising concerns about whether taxpayers can afford it in this time of empty wallets. One of the city’s four middle schools, Central serves 600 students in grades 6 through 8. Residents praise the school’s staff and the quality of education provided there, but many parents and school officials, as well as Mayor Thomas Koch, think it’s time to replace the school with a new facility.
