Welcome Message from the Superintendent

  • Whether you’re a parent, a student, or member of our community, I welcome you to Minuteman.

    School year 2016-17 is already an extraordinary one, perhaps the most significant in Minuteman's relatively brief history.  
    Why? On September 20, 2016, voters in our member towns supported construction of a new 628-student high school designed for the 21st century.  They did so by overwhelming margins.  Nearly 7 out of 10 voters cast ballots for Minuteman, its faculty and students, and generations of students to come.

    This referendum was the culmination of years of hard work by the District School Committee, the School Building Committee, our project consultants, and town and state officials.  I am very grateful to those who supported us.
     
    The way I see it, all of us win with a new Minuteman High School.  We resolve long-standing structural, mechanical, and code issues with the existing building;  create a modern school building that supports innovation and meets current and emerging educational needs; help build a 21st century workforce that strengthens the region's economy and sustains healthy property values; invest in the most affordable option for taxpayers, using more that $44 million in state funds; and safeguard the school's regional accreditation through the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
     
    Welcome again to a great school with a promising future.  If you would like to chat, please contact me by email: ebouquillon@minuteman.org, on Twitter: @DrBMMHS, or by phone at 781-861-6500, ext. 7301.
