The new high school

Repeated visits lately to the new Everett High School (EHS) reveal a structure of almost unsurpassable beauty and utility.

If, for instance, you sit in the upstairs library, you have one of the finest views of the Boston skyline anywhere, let alone the finest bit of electronic equipment, computers, books, and lovely desks, chairs and wooden tables.

The new EHS is an example of what money can buy for our public schoolchildren.

Many so-called finer communities don’t have a high school that can compare with ours.

Not only that, in such a school, in so special a space, kids feel pride and tend to want to work harder, and teachers enjoy the space and feel empowered.

Anyone thinking the city didn’t make the right decision spending the money for the new high school should take a tour of it.

It is absolutely over the top.

Fabulous.

Unbelievable.
