City officials joined the Maspeth community in the grand opening of Maspeth High School’s new site.

A year after its opening, Maspeth High School now has a new, state-of-the art building to call home.

The Maspeth community welcomed the new school building to the neighborhood in a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, February 25, with Borough President Helen Marshall, Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott, Councilmember Elizabeth Crowley, various elected officials and school administrators.

“Maspeth is a better place to live and raise a family because we have this high school,” said Crowley. “The new building is providing the facilities for 21st century learning for our students.”

The opening ceremony featured performances by the school’s string orchestra, the International Thespian Society and the dance company.

Maspeth High School first opened for the 2011 to 2012 school year at the Queens Metropolitan High School campus on Metropolitan Avenue. The school’s new site is roughly three miles away, on 74th Street in Maspeth. It was one of the last public high schools in the city to receive local priority zoning, which ensures local residents have the opportunity to attend.
