Great news for families and community members in the North End, the Eliot elementary school is getting closer than ever before to some much needed expansion in their bid to acquire the North and Richmond Street buildings up for sale.
After spending some time in a marketing period and having two-dozen developers attend property tours of the real estate, no interest has been shown for housing purposes by any of the developers. This is a good sign for those in favor of purchasing the property in the school’s best interest.
Acquiring the buildings would greatly improve the Eliot’s capacity to accommodate an ever-expansive community, especially with a waiting list larger than its current student body.
The school expansion will also benefit the community as a whole, giving more families a reason to stay in the city, not to mention Eliot has a great reputation of being one of the best public schools in Boston.
Much credit is given to Principal, Traci Walker Griffith, for bringing the school’s academic level and achievements to where it is today. During her tenure, the school has turned around and test scores have only gone up, while other schools in the Boston public school system have closed. With more seats available to children at the Eliot can only mean good things for the North End and Boston.
