History of Pingree School

In 1961, the Pingree school, located in South Hamilton MA, was founded by Mr. Pingree in the mansion in which he grew up. Pingree opened with girls, and in 1971 the school became coeducational. Since then, Pingree has grown to be a coeducational school with an enrollment of around 325.

Construction and additions

The development of Pingree's physical plant has demonstrated the school's recognition that it must provide the best possible facilities to support a strong educational program. Four capital drives have allowed the addition of the library (1966); a science wing and cafeteria (1969); the Weld Field House, a modern kitchen, locker rooms and two classrooms (1977); tennis courts and parking areas (1982). In the spring of 1987, the Mary Weld Center for the Performing Arts, which houses a 425-seat theatre, art rooms, music rooms and additional classrooms, was completed. The H. Alden Johnson Rink was finished in time for the 1988-1989 hockey season. In the summer of 2000, construction was completed on a major addition to the library, additional classrooms, the dining commons and student areas. In 2001, plans where drawn up and construction was started on the new academic center which was finished in time for the 2004-2005 school year.

The academic center contains a new senior locker area, three floors of new classrooms (the first floor replaces the old science wing), and academic support centers alongside new faculty departmental offices. English, History, Math, and Science are taught in the new academic center, while languages (French, Spanish, Latin, and Mandarin) are taught in the old house. An addition to the H. Alden Johnson Rink was completed in time for the 2006-2007 hockey season. The newly renovated rink now consists of a state-of-the-art fitness center to be used by students as well as faculty, and four new locker rooms with showers.
