Quincy Public Schools K-5 Learning Communities
In November 2014, Quincy voters overwhelmingly approved an $89 million bond issue to build five new elementary schools and an expansion for Quincy High School. The five new elementary schools will house Kindergarten through fifth grades. The expansion of the High School, which opened in the Fall of 2016, has provided the space necessary to accommodate the freshman class (previously housed at Quincy Junior High). That shift moved all QPS sixth grade students to Quincy Junior High School; which follows a middle school model.
Work was completed for Fall 2017 at Lincoln-Douglas Elementary, our first of five new elementary schools, built on the property of former Monroe School. As of the 2017-2018 academic year it is open and houses K-3 students. Iles Elementary on North 12th Street (west of Hamann Lane) and Rooney Elementary on 48th Street & Columbus Road were completed for the 2018-2019 academic year. Baldwin Elementary at 3000 Maine St. and Denman Elementary (Harrison Street between 30th & 48th) were completed for the 2019-2020 academic year. At Baldwin, Blue Devil Gym and the auditorium have remained intact; as has the cafeteria with necessary upgrades.
