Attention All Madison Residents: Please follow this link and complete the survey for the Reuse of Academy School. This was created by a consultant hired by the town, so your honest answers should carry some weight. When we know more about how this information will be used, we will update this post.
About the Academy School Building and Site
The original Academy School, Hand Academy, was gifted from Daniel Hand in 1884. It became a public high school in 1887. The original school building was demolished and replaced with the current building in 1921. The school was closed in 2004 and transferred to the Town of Madison in 2011.
Studies of the school building suggest that it will cost several million dollars to renovate the property for reuse. Because the site has been vacant for over a decade, and renovation of the building could be costly, the Town is considering multiple options for the future of the building.
The Town seeks your input in making decisions about the future of this property. By taking the following survey, you will provide us with valuable information that will inform this decision making process. The survey will take about five minutes to complete.
