New Martin Luther King Jr. School Construction Website
The Cambridge Public Schools’ Innovation Agenda will result in the creation of four new upper school campuses serving students in grades 6 to 8. The Martin Luther King Jr. School located at 100 Putnam Avenue, Cambridge, will be the first school to be redesigned to include a JK-5 Program, an Upper School Program, Community School and Afterschool programs.
The City of Cambridge has contracted Perkins Eastman to perform a Feasibility Study to help determine if the existing building can support the new programming needs or if it will be necessary to construct a new building.
As part of the Feasibility Study, the City and Perkins Eastman have met with various School Department staff, City departments, some abutters and parents. The interviews with staff were required to develop the program needs for the Innovation Agenda. The meeting with parent and abutters is divided in three components of information: Creative Analysis, Existing Conditions Analysis and Design Options.
