Additions and Expansions
Today’s campus centers around Pereira’s designs from the 1960s, but there have been many incremental changes. Through the 1960s and 1970s, Marlborough continued to buy adjacent properties in the neighborhood, conceiving of the Arden Project that is launching this year. In 1981, the Athletic Center was dedicated along with a Performing Arts center. A computer center opened in 1984, and Caswell Hall was remodeled extensively in the 1980s and 1990s. Larger changes took place in 1996-1997, when the Science Learning Center, the Performing Arts wing, and new College Counseling and Admissions offices were completed.
In 1999, Marlborough carried out its Open Space Plan, demolishing the houses behind campus and dedicating Booth Field in 2000, providing a central area for recreation, athletics, fire drills, and ceremonies. At that time, the School also dedicated new tennis courts, and the parking annex across the street from the main campus.
