Chinatown high school finds permanent home
the Josiah Quincy Upper School (JQUS) has found a permanent home in Chinatown. A $9.5 million offer from the City of Boston to the Boston Chinese Evangelical Church (BCEC) was approved May 5, for the sale of its 249 Harrison Avenue campus. “We had mixed feelings at the beginning, but in the end we feel this is what God wants us to do,” said BCEC senior pastor Steve Chin. “Our members voted more than 90 percent in favor. It’s important for us as a church to move forward together.” Demolition is planned for 2021, in time for the new school to open in 2023. The Upper School serves grades six to 12 in two buildings: the Lincoln School and a modular building. JQUS has no gym, using the Wang YMCA for physical education. The Lincoln School has poor insulation, as it was constructed in 1911, and has no library and media center. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh wrote, “The site selection for the new Quincy Upper location goes back several years, before I became Mayor. After an exhaustive search, we found that 249 Harrison Avenue and the adjacent parcel was the best location for the new school.” The church abuts Parcel A, where the JQUS modular building and a basketball court are. BCEC built the 249 Harrison Avenue church in 1979 and quickly outgrew its capacity. The church purchased 120 Shawmut Avenue in 2013 from South Cove Manor Nursing Home, which relocated to Quincy. More than 1,000 BCEC attendees worship in Chinatown at five sites every Sunday. BCEC is considering whether to consolidate downtown worship services at 120 Shawmut Avenue, but no decision has been made, Chin said.
