Help Us Name the School

Help us Name Gloucester's New School

The merging of Veterans' and East Gloucester Schools comes with an opportunity to identify a new name that will will reflect and honor the history of both schools and help bring together two distinct and long standing school communities.

The School Committee has approved a transparent process that will be organized by the student-led Nominations Committee. This process will result in up to four finalist names, that the School Committee will consider. The School Committee makes the final decision on the name. For more information on the complete process, please go here.

Please note that the School Committee voted in December 2021 to not name the school after an individual. No names of individuals will be considered for the school.
