School Community, Local Politicians Criticize Plans to Relocate High School


Passions ran high on Thursday night at a University Heights Secondary School parents meeting where over 650 parents, teachers and students met with Department of Education representatives and Mary Coleman, a senior vice president of Bronx Community College, to discuss the possible relocation of the school from its current site on the college’s campus.

In December, the college asked the DOE to move the school so that it could use the Nichols Hall building for its own classes. The BCC student population has reached a historic high of almost 11,000 students this semester – 4,000 more than this time last year – Coleman said at the meeting, and it simply needs all the space it has.

But the school community and local polititians are angry about the move, believing it will disrupt the school’s academic success.
