A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Aug. 30 at Wayland High School, to celebrate the new school building's official grand opening.
Steven Grossman, state treasurer and chairman of the Massachusetts School Building Authority, and Jack McCarthy, MSBA executive director, were at the celebration with state and local officials, according to a press release from the MSBA.
“The opening of Wayland High School is another example of the MSBA’s unwavering commitment to Massachusetts schoolchildren,” Grossman said. “All across the Commonwealth, we’re working with school districts to develop state-of-the-art learning environments in which to educate and prepare students for the demands of the new economy.”
The MSBA contribution of $24,610,595, or 40 percent of the cost, helped build the new, $70 million, 171,000-square-foot high school which will serve 900 students in grades nine to 12.
“It is a pleasure to help cut the ribbon for the new Wayland High School,” said McCarthy. “This modern and efficient facility provides Wayland students with a state-of-the-art, 21st-century learning environment.”
