Matignon High School is a private, co-educational Roman Catholic school in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The school is under the auspices of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston.

Campus[edit]

Its campus on Matignon Road, Cambridge, consists of two school buildings: the main school building and a smaller alumni building containing development offices and art classrooms. The campus is adjacent to a church and a rectory. This church used to be the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston's Immaculate Conception church, but reopened in January 2006 as St. Sava Serbian Orthodox church. The school also resides next to the International School of Boston. Over the summer of 2007 Matignon High School underwent many changes to its appearance. It now has a new athletic field, fitness room, and science labs. Smartboards were also placed in every classroom to optimize the learning experience.[citation needed]

History[edit]

Matignon High School is named after Father Francis Anthony Matignon, who was born in Paris on November 10, 1753, and came to the United States after being ordained a priest. He died in 1818. In 1945, the high school was established by Richard Cardinal Cushing (then Archbishop of Boston). Known as a hockey school for many years and has seen many of its alumni earn division 1 scholarships and careers in the National Hockey League. The hockey team won 10 state championships from the mid-1970s through the 1980s and were selected as the best high school hockey team in the nation 5 times. The 1984 squad had 4 seniors taken in the 84 NHL entry draft, while 9 other players earned division 1 hockey scholarships.[citation needed]
