PS 144 Expansion To Be Completed by 2019

The construction on PS 144 is set to be completed by September 2019. The addition will allow the school to seat an additional 600 students.

It will include 26 new classrooms, an entrance lobby, an outdoor play area, a cafeteria, offices and a medical suite.

The goal of the expansion is to eliminate the need for trailers in the schoolyard as well as to prevent overcrowding.

Both the new space and the existing building are now being made ADA accessible.  Furthermore, ADA-compliant water fountains, two new elevators, and a new chairlift are going to be added to the school.

The PS 144 expansion will be completed by September 2019.
