Braintree High School's Project PROVE is a program for individuals of high school age with developmental disabilities and other challenges that was launched in 1972 as a pilot program by a small group of parents and administrators including former Assistant Superintendent Mr. Molongoski.
Prior to the program, students with such challenges were not able to attend high school. Proof of PROVE’s success is evidenced by its longevity and by its students and graduates who are active contributing members to the community today.
The 40th is being celebrated throughout the year and will culminate in a 40th Anniversary celebration combined with the Annual Project PROVE Reunion at the on October 21, 2012.
If you missed Saturday's festivities, come see Ramshackle at the Concert on July 10 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and you'll still have a chance to buy a wristband or ten. And, if you can't make it there, come by and see us at the Farmers Market on July 14.
