  1. Very very exciting. A real shot in the arm for the South End. BTW I had the pleasure of spending time at the New Fairchild Wheeler Magnet High School. A magnificent work of art on a gorgeous campus. All local public Middle schools should take 7th and 8th graders on a field trip. They need to see what could be on the horizon for them. What a beautifully designed and appointed school.
