Our Insights

Once touted as a model school, JHS 99 educational complex was one of the first in the city to divide a large building into semi-autonomous "mini-schools," each with its own philosophy, leadership, and admissions criteria. Two of the schools in the building, Manhattan East Middle School MS 224 (grades 6-8) and Academy of Environmental Sciences Secondary School, MS 636 (grades 6-12) still function, but the elementary school, Hostos Academy, is being closed and students dispersed to PS 38 or 50.

In June 2005, JHS 99 graduated its last class of 8th graders.

The complex is a "beacon school," so the building has after school programs and is open for community activities at night. (Judy Baum, May, 2005)
