No interest in doing Horace Mann study


The feasibility study would look at moving Horace Mann School to the Harrington building on the south campus of Salem State, and the issues involved with converting that to an elementary school. Built in 1963, the building was originally part of Ste. Chretienne Academy, an all-girl Catholic high school that closed in 1971.

The study is a first step, Driscoll said, in determining whether it is possible and practical to make that move. The city and university have not decided to relocate Horace Mann, she said, only to examine the issues and costs involved.

But, as a start, the city has to find a consultant willing to do the study.
