Our Review

MS 45 STARS Prep, a middle school that served students in grades 6-8 in East Harlem, closed after the 2012-2013 school year. The school was closed after years of poor performance, with its enrollment dropping from about 300 students to fewer than 150 students between 2011 and 2013.

The building now houses the Harlem Village Academy East Charter School and the Coalition School for Social Change.
