Ashland Mindess School Ribbon Cutting Ceremony – September 9, 2023

September 27, 2023

Congratulations to the Ashland Mindess School team.  They worked overtime all summer to get the old school demolished despite a 2-week delay due to unforeseen conditions to the tune of $400K in ACM ceiling panels in a utility trench below the building slab and another $60K in the transit pipe on the site. Paving and sidewalks were getting installed right up through Saturday of Labor Day weekend.  The school successfully opened on Tuesday 9/5 and the happy students are loving their new space.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was held Saturday morning, September 9th with all the people who helped make it happen.  A lot of praise was given to the VERTEX, Shawmut, and Flansburgh teams for making this school a reality and on time while navigating a myriad of challenges.

Congratulations to Mike Quinlan, Bob Tucker, and Eric Rubin for never taking their foot off the gas despite all the supply chain issues that COVID-19 kept throwing at them.

Highlights of the new Ashland Mindess School building: 

  • The building uses a pod design for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. 
  • The building uses color-coded hallways to make it easy to navigate. Yellow is for third grade, green is for fourth grade and blue is for fifth grade. 
  • The school has wonderful spaces specifically designed for special education students. 
  • It has multiple outdoor learning areas and a rooftop classroom. 
  • Landscape choices were made intentionally with low-maintenance plants and trees. 
  • There are two common areas where teachers can take students to learn in a new environment.  
  • The building supports 635 students and 65 teachers, support staff and administrators. 
  • It is climate controlled due to geothermal wells. 
  • The next steps are to build the outdoor playground, basketball court and athletic fields in front of the building.
