WEST NEWBURY -- Superintendent Justin Bartholomew wishes to provide an update to the community about the Pentucket Regional Middle-High
The PRSD 7-12 Building Project proposes a new three-story state-of-the-art facility combining middle and high school students in one building on a unified campus.
The new building would replace the overcrowded and outdated high school and middle schools in support of the academic excellence of our students in the Pentucket Regional School District for many years to come.
Making sure we do it as affordably as possible is critical! The estimated cost of the project is $146.3 million.
Project Goal: Replace Outdated Building
Constructed in 1956, Pentucket High School has cracks in its foundation, old and corroded plumbing and a maxed out electrical system.
Project Goal: Upgrade Classrooms
The classrooms are out of date, poorly designed and have limited technology. The WiFi signal is weak across the building.
Project Goal: Reduce Overcrowding
Due to a lack of space students have classes in both schools requiring them to walk outdoors. This often results in late arrivals and lost instruction time.
