West Roxbury Educational Complex (formerly West Roxbury High School) is a high school complex within Boston Public Schools located in the West Roxbury neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts. The complex consists of two schools, namely the West Roxbury Academy and the Urban Science Academy.


West Roxbury High School has been renamed West Roxbury Educational Complex,[1] and is divided into four schools: Media Communications Technology High School, Parkway Academy of Technology and Health, Urban Science Academy [2] and Brook Farm Business & Service Career Academy.[3]

The school is located between Millennium Park and a large wetland. An island within the wetland is accessible by a boardwalk from the shore behind the school where the Boston Schoolyard Initiative built an Outdoor Classroom and science education site in collaboration with the Urban Science Academy.

In the fall of 2011, the West Roxbury Education Complex will be separated into two schools, closing two. Brook Farm Academy & Media Communications Technology High School will be merged into one school while Urban Science Academy and parkway Academy of Technology and Health will be merged into one school at the complex. The School is located near the 19th Century site of Brook Farm, and in the watershed of the upper Charles River.
