Building history

Originally housed in a kindergarten school in West Newton, the School developed a cooperative working relationship with the Newton Public Schools. In 1946, the Trustees acquired the School’s first real home, at the corner of Walnut and Cabot Streets.
By 1965, under the leadership of Anne Gombosi, the School had outgrown the building and was able to purchase its current home on Chestnut Street. With no existing mortgage, and tax free 501(c)(3) status, ANMS has no prevailing debt on the building in which we exist.
In 2004 the Board of Directors confronted the dilemma of a deteriorating building in dire need of updating with significant accessibility challenges. Faced with the option of relocating or renovating, the Board voted to renovate, embarking on a 10-year capital renovation campaign with an identified need of 1.65 million dollars in additional revenue to complete the renovation.
