The Department of Education has finally responded to parents who complained about overcrowding in Upper West Side elementary schools, agreeing to open a new school on the Upper West Side this fall.
The new school’s classrooms will be located in the M.S. 44 building on West 77th Street and Columbus Avenue, which also houses the Computer School and the Anderson School. The school will start offering classes this fall, and will grow to 450 students within six years, according to the West Side Spirit.
The city hasn’t yet decided which students will get priority to enroll in the new school. PS 199 and PS 87 will still both continue to offer six kindergarten classes, the West Side Spirit reported. (Photo from Class Size Matters organization.)
