1962 Norwood School Committee

NORWOOD, Mar, 22 -Arthur B. Rodgers, chairman of the School Housing Study Committee which is responsible for the long-range projection of the towns future school needs, has requested information from the School Committee on its plans for new schools.

Being considered by the School Committee are the possibilities of the construction of a second junior high school, a new elementary school, and an addition to the Balch School.

Supt. of Schools Dr. Philip O. Coakley has suggested as a suitable location for a new Junior High School the 6 1/2 acre tract adjacent to the Fr McAleer Playground.

School committeeman John Reynolds has pointed out that there are more than twelve acres of land known as Hennessey’s Field which was purchased by the town in 1950 for school purposes and that this site is available for a new school.

Rodgers has stated that his committee is now making a comprehensive study of the school needs and will be ready to make a report and recommendations in the near future.
