From the Daily News:
The politically connected Queens charter school that held classes in drab trailers with no playground, lab or gym is finally moving into a real building.
Following a Daily News investigation earlier this year, Peninsula Preparatory Charter School officials announced they'll move into a Catholic school building five miles away this fall.
The space will become available because Stella Maris High School is closing.
The announcement marks the end for the 67-year-old, all-girls Stella Maris High School, which will close its doors because of declining enrollment and a looming budget deficit. School officials could not be reached for comment yesterday.
"I'm all for charter schools, and it's nice they're moving out of the trailers into a beautiful building," said Theresa McCann, a 1978 Stella Maris graduate. "But it's a tragedy that the high school won't exist."
