Josiah Quincy Upper School

In December 2022, we celebrated the raising of the last steel beam at the new Josiah Quincy Upper School facility at 900 Washington Street, Boston, MA 021111. This was a significant milestone in this construction project, a $193 million facility supported by the City of Boston and the Massachusetts School Building Authority. The new 6-story facility will accommodate 650 students, and will include a rooftop outdoor classroom and activity complex, a media center, athletic and fitness areas, a black box theater, auditorium, cafeteria, and other learning and administrative spaces. The design includes a fresh air make-up system and enhanced filtration to mitigate air pollution from vehicle traffic on nearby highways. Construction is expected to be complete before the 2024-2025 school year.
