Eliot School, in JP Since 1600s, May Move

In 1676, the Eliot School was founded when a group of residents donated corn and land to open a school in Jamaica Plain. After more than 340 years, the Eliot School could possibly move out of the neighborhood. In June, Abigail Norman, executive director for the Eliot School, wrote about the fine arts and crafts school's current multi-year research process. In 2018, a team of architects explored what it might look like to expand the schoolhouse on Eliot Street. This year, consultants Jennifer Gilbert and Traggorth Companies are exploring what it might look like to move operations to a new Boston location, either completely or in part. The school offers a variety of classes for people of all ages -- from preschool to the elderly.
