St. Anne’s School (Lawrence, MA)

As the size of the French community in Lawrence increased the parishioners of St. Anne’s Catholic Church felt the need of a school for their children where they could get a solid religious educations and keep the French language. Fr. Godin opened a school in a wood frame building for both boys and girls in the 1880s. In 1892 a brick building was built for the boys and instruction came from the Brothers of Mary. The girls remained in the old building a received instruction from the Sisters of the Good Shepherd.
An addition was added in the twentieth century and for many years the boys were in this building and the girls were in the older building.
In the 1990s the newest building was used by the Lawrence Public Schools as the Haverhill Street School.
It is now the Lawrence Family Development Charter Middle School.
