Mayor David Martin closed the deal that will open the doors to a new school in Stamford. The City finalized its purchase of 200 Strawberry Hill Avenue from the Sisters of St. Joseph Thursday for $9.75 million. 

The 10.8-acre property is the former site of Sacred Heart Academy, which closed in 2006, and most recently served as the Stamford Campus for The Stanwich School.

Mayor Martin says the City is looking to use the site as an inter-district magnet school for kindergarten through fifth grade, serving as a solution to the overcrowding problem in the elementary schools. 

The Mayor says he’s hoping to have a school up and running for students by September 2016; But the property may see some use even sooner, with the fields being open for public use this Fall.
