Facilities

The Braintree Public School (BPS) system services close to 6,000 students from pre-Kindergarten to 12th grade in:

  • The Monatiquot School Kindergarten Center
  • One grade 9 through 12 high school
  • One preschool center based at Braintree High School
  • Six neighborhood elementary schools (all serving grades 1 through 5 with five housing at least one section of full-day kindergarten)
  • Two grade 6 through 8 middle schools

Beyond the academic day and year, students are able to access multiple opportunities in academic and social clubs and activities, visual and performing arts, athletics, and extended year support services and programs. You can find more detailed information about each of our school buildings, including general facility information, and capital improvements completed for the last several years, on "Building Information & Capital Improvements" page.

Capital Projects & Improvements: Upgrades, Renovations & Expansion

  3. Current & Future Plans

The BPS has been experiencing steady enrollment growth for the last fifteen years, gaining just over 1,400 students during that time period: as of October 2017, our enrollment was 5,890. This growth speaks to the quality of life and opportunities for new residents and families and is reflective of the fact that Braintree is a mature community with a broad residential and business base. The Town is serviced by both the MBTA Commuter Rail and T and provides a convenient location for those commuting into Boston and to Logan International Airport.

Current and new residents feel that people are attracted to Braintree as a good place to live and work because it has an excellent public school system. Braintree also offers a number of well-maintained public parks and a dynamic recreation program.

This growth has brought some challenges for our schools, one of which has been the availability of classroom space. When coupled with our core value of providing outstanding in-district special education programming, many of our schools have had to find creative solutions to gain needed classrooms. While space constraints are an issue, there has also been the need to simultaneously update our facilities.

Annual Asbestos Notification Letter

A copy of our district's Asbestos Management Plan is available in each school and at the main administrative office during regular school hours. The district continues to update and improve the AHERA Asbestos Management Plans. Any inquiries regarding the management of asbestos-containing materials in our schools should be directed to our district's AHERA Designated Person, Chris McNamara.
