Parents Call for College Point Middle School

Picture 10

The City and locals disagree over what to do with a recently freed up school site in College Point. Parents want a new middle school at the former St. Fidelis School building at 124-06 14th Avenue, but the city is considering putting an elementary school there instead, The Daily News reported. State Senator Tony Avella is also calling for a middle school. Right now, parents have to send their kids to Whitestone or Flushing for junior high. On the other hand, the two elementary schools, P.S. 129 and P.S. 29, are both over 100 percent capacity. The Department of Education is still reviewing the site. GMAP
