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.
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, it has seen many of its alumni earn Division 1 scholarships and careers in the National Hockey League. The hockey team won ten state championships from the mid-1970s through the 1980s and was selected as the best high school hockey team in the nation five times. The 1984 squad had four seniors taken in the 84 NHL entry draft, while nine other players earned Division 1 hockey scholarships.
