Local High School Could Move to the South Bronx

February 5, 2010

In December, Bronx Community College divulged its intention to evict University Heights Secondary School from its campus at the end of this school year, so that the college can better accommodate a growing student body.

The decision maddened parents, teachers, and students at the school, as well as local politicians, who have been speaking out against BCC.

The Department of Education, meanwhile, has been busy hunting for a new site for the school, and on Feb. 2 announced they’d found one: the South Bronx High School Campus, at 701 St. Ann’s Ave. (near East 156th Street).

The building currently houses New Explorers High School, Urban Assembly Careers in Sports and Mott Haven Village Preparatory High School. New Explorers and Urban Assembly are scheduled to move into a new facility in the fall, which will free up space, the DOE said.

The proposal will be discussed at a public hearing on March 11, at the South Bronx High School Campus. The final decision rests with the city’s Panel for Educational Policy.
