This week we begin work on a machine and hand carved sign to honor a high school in Swampscott MA that earlier this year was added to the list of Blue Ribbon schools. The Blue Ribbon School program was created by the U.S. Dept. of Education to honor schools that have achieved high levels of student achievement. It is a designation earned by only .2 percent of schools nationwide. This award is a result of hard work on behalf of the faculty and staff and an achievment for the entire community. We were chosen to undertake this carving because the school had noticed similar plaques that we had carved for the Liberty Corner School and the Mt. Prospect Schools, both in New Jersey. This carved sign will be double the size of those we have previously made and be featured prominantly at the entrance to this amazing modern high school that was completed in 2007. Designed by the Architectural firm of Symmes, Maini & Mackee Associate in Cambridge, MA this 10 acre campus hosts 850 students grade 9-12 with an average 12-1 student to teacher ratio. This has been a big year for the school that also scored a silver award from the prestigious US News and World Report ranking of Best High Schools. We look forward to see our work prominently displayed on this modern landmark building.
