Queens getting 6 new high schools
Many of the new schools - like Queens Collegiate, which will open on the campus of Jamaica High School - share space at existing schools. As the small school grows one grade per year, the larger school often struggles to accommodate everyone, Haimson said.
"They should be creating more facilities," said Haimson. "Instead they keep squeezing more and more small schools into already overcrowded schools."
