About 249 Harrison Ave
Chinatown, Boston, MA
The Josiah Quincy Upper School (JQUS) has found a permanent home in Chinatown at 249 Harrison Ave. The 12,193 square foot lot will be transformed into a new school with demolition planned for 2021, in time for the new school to open in 2023.
The Upper School serves grades six to 12 in two buildings: the Lincoln School and a modular building. JQUS has no gym, using the Wang YMCA for physical education. The Lincoln School has poor insulation, as it was constructed in 1911, and has no library and media center.
