History of EAGLE

EAGLE School began operation in the fall of 1982 with 12 children in one room of Hoyt School. By the next fall EAGLE had almost tripled the size of its student body. In March of 1986 the school moved into the previous facility near Elver Park – its own building with nine classrooms, a library, and office space. In 1990 a new wing doubled the building’s size and featured a gymnasium, kindergarten room and music room. In 1992 a solarium was added to the art room, and in 1993 a major renovation enlarged the library and science lab and created three new classrooms and a teacher resource room.

In the fall of 1998 EAGLE moved into its present location in Fitchburg, and in the fall of 2014 work was completed on an expansion to the building that added fifteen more classrooms, a greenhouse, and a large performing arts auditorium.  Our current staff includes a director, a finance assistant, a student services coordinator, an admissions coordinator, a volunteer/Study Club coordinator, two guidance counselors, a librarian, a receptionist, more than 30 teachers, and several parent aides.
