Elected officials and the School Construction Authority will join members of the 1969 World Series Champion Miracle Mets for a school naming ceremony in Queens. Attendees will officially dedicate I.S. 419 as the Tommie L. Agee Educational Campus in honor of the legendary Mets outfielder.
The new state-of-the-art school is one of 11 new school buildings opening in Queens and will serve students in grades 6-8. The 646 new seats will help alleviate overcrowding in District 24 as part of the more than 2,800 new seats created in Queens for the 2022-2023 school year.
The building is a fully air-conditioned, accessible five-story school, providing 18 standard classrooms, two district special education classrooms as well as reading and speech resource rooms. The school also includes a District 75 program, which contains eight additional classrooms with dedicated student restrooms, rooms for occupational and physical therapy, a guidance room, and a multi-purpose room.
