Dorchester High School for Boys
High School for Boys
Click image for more information
 Around 1920 or soon thereafter, the City of Boston built the High School for Boys at the end of Peacevale Road where it meets Wentworth Terrace behind Roberts Playground. That left the yellow brick Dorchester High School building at Codman Square as a high school for girls.


At the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st, this building was called Dorchester High School. About 2008 or 2009, it became TechBoston Academy, a small pilot school with 780 students in grades 6-12, offering a college preparatory curriculum with technology focus and interdisciplinary, project-based learning

President Barack Obama visited the school in 2011.
