In 1996, the Everett School Building Commission selected two adjacent properties (the former brownfields site and the adjoining site) as the location for the Madeline English School, a playground, a parking lot, and a small open green space. The Everett School Board named the grammar school in 2000 in honor of Madeline English. Madeline English played third base for the Racine Belles, a baseball team in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, from 1943 to 1950. She was named an All Star in 1946 and 1948. During her playing days, she graduated from Boston University. She worked for 27 years as a teacher and guidance counselor at the Parlin Junior High School in Everett, MA. In1988, the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York recognized her achievements on the field by inducting the All Stars from the All American Girls Professional Baseball League.

In 1997, the city was awarded $11 million in funding from the School Building Assistance Bureau (SBAB) of the MA Department of Education to pay for 60 % of the remediation and redevelopment of the two properties. In 1999, the city of Everett obtained ownership of the brownfields site due to back taxes of the former owner. In August 1999, the city of Everett awarded the contractor, Barletta Engineering Company, to conduct the remediation and redevelopment of the two properties. The total acreage of these two properties is between 4.5 and 5 acres. The total project cost $18.5 million, including remediation and redevelopment of the property (not including the TBAs.) The Madeline English School, a school that can hold 950 children between pre-Kindergarten and 8th grade, will have a grand opening ceremony in September 2003. Ms. English will be in attendance at the grand opening ceremony.
