Councilman Paul Vallone and the Department of Education (DOE) announced today that students living in College Point will finally have their own middle school.
The new 507-seat junior high school is expected to open with a new class of 6th graders in 2018.
The school will be located at the former St. Fidelis School at 124-06 14th Avenue.
“This long awaited middle school is a huge win for the students and parents of College Point who have asked for this for years,” Vallone said. “This new school is a critical investment in our children’s educational future.”
Vallone is asking all residents attend the next meeting of the Community Education Council (CEC) for District 25 next month on May 3rd to learn more about this school. It will be at 7 p.m. at 30-48 Linden Place in Flushing.
“As we approach its official opening in 2018, our office will ensure the community and DOE are engaged along every step of the way,” Vallone added, “to establish the best possible school for the students throughout College Point.”
