PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A century-old girls’ school in Western Massachusetts is updating its campus through a $10 million tax-exempt bond issued by MassDevelopment, the state’s finance and development agency.

Miss Hall’s School in Pittsfield is an independent school for girls in grades nine through 12. It will use the funding to build a student residence hall and an academic building with a high-tech lab for animation, robotics and innovation.

NBT Bank purchased the bond through a private placement. The school expects the project will create seven jobs and support 100 construction jobs.

Founded in 1898, Miss Hall’s was one of the first all-girls boarding schools established in New England. Today, the school is a nationally recognized boarding and day school with 214 students.
