My high school is being torn down in a few months, and earlier this week they sold off the locker doors (which were color coded based on which “house” of the school you belonged to! Good idea. Neat pic too (courtesy Boston Globe).
To replace it, they built (over the past few years) the most expensive high school in the country on the location of the football fields, etc — www.newnnhs.com/currentstatus. Destroyed a few politicians careers as the price went up to 200+ million dollars. The new building actually looks pretty nice (NOT the brick one in the background of the photo — that’s the one being torn down), from what I’ve seen from afar (I am not in Newton).
