Two extra pre-K classes were added to the Pre-K Center in July, allowing 40 kids a spot for next school year. Though it helped some kids, it was not enough to accommodate everyone.
Eventually, the DOE’s plan is to open three new schools in Long Island City, with at least one located in Hunters Point.
“We’ll build on this progress and continue to work with families and partners in serving the Long Island City community,” Will Mantell, DOE spokesperson, said.
