The first mural to be painted on the walls of our new building was developed by Ali O’Brien, Class of 2010, with help Susie Carter, Class of 2011, as well as from Mr. Godbout, Mr. Hancin, and Ms. Sheppard. Ali is now an English teacher at Vermont Academy, and Susie is a graphic designer in NYC.

NAHS officers Kendall Sweeney, Steph Francalancia, and Bella Alex led members of the Northborough, Southborough, and Regional School Committees on a tour of as many art projects as could be seen in 30 minutes. Those joining the entourage were able to hear firsthand about these students’ inspiration and planning for their NAHS induction and Advanced Art class projects, as well as the history of public art pieces at Algonquin. We’re happy to share the tour with you in this interactive map. One fantastic suggestions tonight was to provide this to all Freshmen- we’re on it!

Combing stress out of one’s hair was the inspiration for Bella Alex’s Induction Project, an homage to our Guidance staff greeting students whenever they leave Guidance office.

Steph Francalancia and Kendall Sweeney created this tree mural in 2015 to bring attention to the Serenity Garden.
