New Woodside School Opened Yesterday


Sept. 10, 2015 By Jackie Strawbridge

The first day of public school yesterday marked the opening of a new elementary school in Woodside.

P.S. 361, or the Woodside Community School, is located at 39-07 57th St. About 100 Kindergarten and pre-K students started class yesterday, according to the Community Education Council for the school district.

The school will grow each year to eventually serve about 500 students in grades pre-K through five.

The school building is also currently hosting fifth and sixth graders from nearby P.S. 11, while that school undergoes construction for an addition that will address its severe overcrowding.

The public schools wish they performed as well as the charters. Socialists certainly hate competition.


Disappointed to see that a person who has good taste in television is a moron who believes everything the NY Post prints.


Your initial remark is really misguided and very wrong to say. I work in a public school that shares a building with a charter school. They get rid of students who have low grades, so their scores are higher. In public school, we are happy to take anyone, and even if your scores are low, we will still work with you and not ask you to leave.


@kramden If I opened a school and was allowed to throw out the bottom performing students my school would show better numbers too. Are you for real? You gullible fool. Haha So the charter school educate the kids who were already being educated in the public school and nobody educates the low performing and troubled students. So pretty much they sold you something you already had and convince a gullible jerk like you, you did great putting your trust in them. What ever happened to the kids who the charter school didn’t take? In 5 years we’ll be paying for them to have a cot and 3 squares. Hahaha it’s hilarious to see the conned cheer on their own con artists. The hallmark of a master con. Keep up the good work Kramden. Hahaha

More mudslinging and ad hominem attacks pretending to be an intelligent and civil discussion. I can understand why you are sensitive on the subject of education. You’ve been cheated out of a decent one.

I don’t think it can be declared a hominem attack if it’s backed up fact. Mac is absolutely correct in his observation when the factors creating the bottom or lower numbers in a data set are removed then the new equation creates an averaging much closer to the top of the data set. It’s elementary math. I think and this is just an opinion, you need to learn to “suck it up”. When you lose an argument and can’t refute with facts then move on. You obviously believe “socialist” is a bad word and resorted to a “hominem” attack. Mac was rude in his rebuttal. A “sore winner”.


i don’t know if it’s the rain or labor day hangovers or what, but i see i’m only the second comment here. now if this was a story about a new residential building going up we’d have 85 comments by now wouldn’t we? anyway i’m very happy to see a new school opening, we all know it’s sorely needed. glad to see that someone is helping us with at least one of our infrastructure issues around here.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
