A new middle school opened its doors in Queens last week, just in time for the beginning of the school year.
Success Academy, which operates charter schools throughout New York City, opened the middle school in St. Albans on Aug. 20. This middle school, located at 132-55 Ridgedale St., marks Success Academy’s first middle school location in the borough.
The new middle school with serve students from fifth to eighth grade. Just like at Success Academy’s other middle schools, students will engage in a rich and rigorous curriculum that will develop independence and self-motivation throughout their four years at the school.
Since opening their first school in 2006, Success Academy has had a dual mission of advancing education reform in America and providing world-class academics to students, regardless of their ZIP code or background.

This middle school location is the fourth Success Academy school to open in Queens. In 2014, Success Academy opened two K-4 schools, one in Rosedale and the other in Springfield Gardens, and in 2016 they opened another K-4 school in South Jamaica.
