Investing in Education

The City of Worcester is committed to improving public schools' infrastructure to help students with their goal of academic excellence. With two major school construction projects in the works and others recently completed, we are dedicated to advancing Worcester's future.

Doherty Memorial High School Building Project

The City and Worcester Public Schools recently held a series of visioning workshops, which were collaborative, engaging and hands-on sessions designed to inform the Doherty Memorial High School facility design process. Ideas and feedback from these meetings will be used to determine which options are highly recommended for further study into either repair, addition renovation or new construction.
