Facilities Plan: School-by-School

Harriet Gibbons High School
75 Watervliet Avenue

In 2003, Harriet Gibbons High School moved to a newly renovated building on Watervliet Avenue. The school was previously located at 400 Sheridan Avenue in a crowded and run-down building leased from the Catholic Diocese. The building at that location was torn down to make way for a new school, Sheridan Preparatory Academy. To view pictures of the new facility, visit the Harriet Gibbons Photo Gallery.  

The new Harriet Gibbons High School includes:

  • Larger classrooms with modern fixtures and a computer in each classroom, providing students with high-level, hands-on learning opportunities.

  • Modern science labs with running water and computers.

  • A cutting-edge library/media center that is home to 25 computers with Internet access, providing students with a place to conduct research and do homework.

  • A fitness center stocked with weight-lifting and cardiovascular equipment donated by the General Electric Elfun Society and other local organizations. The center provides students with the opportunity to improve their physical health.

The new building was selected for its size and proximity to many local businesses. Students participating in school-to-work programs and internships can get to work easily. The new location is also near to the CDTA bus line.

The school is now handicapped accessible, fully air conditioned, and equipped with a fire detection and sprinkler system.
