New High School Project[edit]

Wilmington has been approved by the state of Massachusetts to build a new High school. A resident group of ten has held up the progress of construction. On January 9, 2013 it was announced the schools gymnasium would be torn down. Many see this to be a big step forward in the construction of a much needed 21st century education for the students of Wilmington. Nearly two years after the demolition of the gymnasium, the new high school has been completed and is ready for students to move in. An event celebrating the school's completion was held on Sunday, February 22nd, 2015, and students will move into the new school on February 24th, 2015. Demolition of the old high school will begin in March of 2015, and the rest of the athletic facilities should be completed by the end of 2015. [5]

Rotating Schedule[edit]

The school has a two-day rotating schedule with four classes a day including a lunch block. Each class is an hour and a half long, with three different half hour lunch periods throughout the day. Blue Day: pd(s) 1-2-3-4 White Day: pd(s) 1-2-3-4
