New campus for vo-tech high school to open in Lexington, Mass.

Minuteman High, a regional vocational-technical school that serves 10 towns in Massachusetts, will welcome students next month to its new $145 million campus.

Minuteman High School, a regional vocational-technical high school in Lexington, Mass., will open a new $145 mllion campus next month.

Wicked Local Dover reports that the new facility, set to open on Sept. 3, has been some 11 years in the making.

“It’s all I hoped for and more,” says Minuteman’s Superintendent-Director, Edward A. Bouquillon. “It exceeded my expectations in regard to design, quality and the practical, efficient use of space. It’s a beautiful place. The students are going to be surprised at how much it resembles a college.”

The new Minuteman High School has been designed to accommodate 628 students. The district serves 10 towns: Acton, Arlington, Belmont, Bolton, Concord, Dover, Lancaster, Lexington, Needham, and Stow.

The project's architect, Kaestle Boos Associates, says the features of the 270,000-square-foot facility include large classrooms, vocational programs organized into trade clusters, a “main street” retail area, and break out spaces for small group learning.

The school received a temporary occupancy permit on July 25, and expects to get a permanent one around Aug. 23.
