​Hunnewell Project: Feasibility Study Report

The School Building Committee concluded the Hunnewell Elementary School feasibility study phase the end of July 2019 with a recommendation to design a New Construction solution to replace the existing Hunnewell School.

The current conceptual design for a new Hunnewell Elementary school includes a two-story building of approximately 74,000 GSF that supports a design enrollment of 365 students with 18 regular sections and a 19th classroom to be used as a STEAM lab. Images of the Floor Plans can be viewed here.  A copy of the conceptual site plan shows how the building layouts out on the site with parking, site circulation and play areas.
