Cabot School

The Cabot School was built in 1929 and an addition was built in 1956 that added 4 classrooms and the gym. The City of Newton has been accepted into the Massachusetts School Building Authority's school renovation/replacement program. We are currently under construction and the project will be complete for the start of the 2019 school year. 

The Cabot School is located at 229 Cabot Street.

The Massachusetts School Building Authority (“MSBA”) is a quasi-independent government authority created to reform the process of funding capital improvement projects in the Commonwealth’s public schools. The MSBA strives to work with local communities to create affordable, sustainable, and energy efficient schools across Massachusetts.   The Legislature created the MSBA in 2004 to replace the former school building assistance program administered by the Department of Education (now the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education)

Throughout the development of the Cabot School Project, Newton Public Schools and the City provide opportunities for public input and project updates to the Cabot community and City residents.


In 1975 the City of Newton established the Newton Historical Commission under Massachusetts General Laws chapter 40, section 8D for the preservation, promotion and development of the historical or archaeological assets of the City. The Commission consists of 7 permanent members and up to 7 alternates. All members are appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the Board of Aldermen. One member is nominated by the Newton Historical Society; one is a registered architect nominated by the Boston Society of Architects; and one is a realtor nominated by the Newton Board of Realtors. The remaining permanent members and alternates are appointed at large. The Newton Historical Commission is the City of Newton’s advisory body on preservation matters. It also designates and manages changes to Newton City Landmarks, manages changes to properties with Preservation Restrictions, manages the Demolition Delay Ordinance and comments on projects and provides advice from a preservation perspective.
