When the seven Queens Turnaround high schools reopen their doors, it will be under a new name.

The names were chosen through a process of engagement with students, staff, community members, alumni and elected officials.

“I want to congratulate all 24 schools on a thorough process to propose school names that honor their histories, their neighborhoods and their new visions for success,” said Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott.

The schools new names are as follows:

August Martin- School of Opportunities at the August Martin Campus

Bryant- Academy of Humanities and Applied Science at the William Cullen Bryant Campus

Flushing- Rupert B. Thomas Academy at the Flushing Campus

John Adams- Future Leaders High School at the John Adams Campus
