On Thursday, October 8, 2020, in partnership with Boston Design Week, we hosted "The Face of the Neighborhood: An NBSS Building Tour" as part of our In the Making public programs series. We enjoyed hearing from Frano Violich of Kennedy Violich Architects, the firm who led the award-winning restoration of our facility, and from Nathan Abbe VM '20, one of our Violin Making & Repair students who formerly studied architecture.

When a pre-K classroom needed desks to reopen this fall, Cabinet & Furniture Making alumni Mike Turner CF '20 and Emily Goff CF '20 stepped up.

For our students, part of the North Bennet Street School experience includes getting to know more about our historical North End. We strongly encourage you to explore the neighborhood! To get you started, members of the NBSS community have provided some recommendations to consider here.
