Boston land swap gives North End schools a lift
Eliot, N. Bennet fill growing needs
The City of Boston agreed today to real estate swap in the North End that will allow a popular public grammar school to potentially double in size. The $11.35 million deal will give the Eliot K-8 School a second campus with four buildings on North Bennet and Tileston streets. While it will take a few years to renovate the buildings, the extra space will be a boon to the Eliot, a school with an enrollment of 322 students that has wait list of 295.
