Madison Park High School, 1974-1978
The old Madison Park neighborhood of Roxbury was cleared to provide a ten-acre site for the new Madison Park Campus High School, built as a “magnet school” to attract students from all parts of the city into voluntarily integrated education. The interconnected buildings housed some of the most outstanding facilities of any high school in the country at the time.... The architectural solution is a precast-concrete-faced group of tightly linked buildings somewhat fortress-like in appearance. There are six interconnected components: an administration/library building with mechanical services and main kitchen, two classroom buildings, a gymnasium, a science center, and a shop/drama building.
