Help Us Build a Great New School
The Town of Saugus has been accepted into the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) grant program for school building construction and renovation projects. The Saugus High School Project Building Committee is now investigating options for the renovation or replacement of the current Saugus High School building. The Town, along with its residents, consultants and project managers, is working to identify the most educationally appropriate and cost effective path forward.
Why do we need a new school in Saugus?
Building condition and structural issues
The Saugus High School building’s interior is failing and the overall building and systems are in poor condition. Aging systems in the current building result in significantly higher maintenance and operating costs.
High energy consumption
Energy consumption in the existing Saugus High School building is exorbitant. The steam heating system is antiquated and inefficient resulting in inadequate ability to regulate classroom temperatures. The building lacks proper insulation in the walls and roof, windows are single pane and inadequate to keep heat in the building.
