Natick, MA – MassDevelopment has issued a $4.1 million tax-exempt bond on behalf of Riverbend School, an independent Montessori school in Natick.

Riverbend will use bond proceeds to build and equip a full-size gymnasium and a new elementary school building. The elementary school building, which broke ground in October 2019, will house the lower elementary program for students in first, second, and third grades, as well as design and art classrooms, an afterschool program, and administrative offices.
