New Facility for the Horace Mann School

We are proposing $41.6 million in the FY24 Capital Plan to support major renovations to the Edwards building in Charlestown. The renovated building will serve as the new home for the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (HMS) community as well as the early childhood grades of the Warren-Prescott school beginning in the Fall of 2024. The renovations to the Edwards building are based on intentional design rooted in Deaf space principles to best support the HMS and Warren-Prescott communities. We are also continuing to explore alternative long-term site options across Boston through a siting study.
