Brooklyn Heights' P.S. 8 May Get Its Middle School

Parents at P.S. 8 in Brooklyn Heights (shown above) are keeping their fingers crossed, hoping a site proposed for their new middle school in Downtown Brooklyn comes through.

The Brooklyn Eagle reports that the city hopes to locate the P.S. 8 extension in a building housing George Westinghouse High School and City Polytechnic High School at 105 Tech Place, fronting Tillary Street.

Let's hope it all works out. Families in the Heights haven't had a public middle school option for decades.
Many P.S. 8 children have gone on to a Fort Greene middle school, the Urban Assembly School of Arts &  Letters, but that school will be cutting its enrollment in half soon.
