Benchmarks

FALL 2012

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a new school in the heart of Boston became a reality in May when the city of Boston announced NBSS would purchase the former city printing plant and police station on North Street, five blocks from the current location. As work begins to design and build the new facility, the school maintains a steady hum as master faculty and focused students begin the school year and alumni connect through an online Alumni Center.
