The Upper East Side is set to get a new elementary school, Public School 267, according to an announcement made today by the Department of Education. The new school, set to open this fall with 60 to 75 kindergarden students, will start out in the current Public School 158 location at 1458 York Avenue near the corner of East 77th Street, before moving to its permanent location at 213 East 63rd Street between Second and Third avenues. Although the DOE didn’t release a specific move-in date for the 63rd Street location, it said that the new school will add a new grade on each year once it settles into its permanent space. The move to open a new school comes on the heels of massive community outcry over alleged overcrowding in the neighborhood’s public educational facilities. City Council member Jessica Lappin said that the residents were in dire need of a new public school. “We have massive overcrowding on the Upper East Side,” Lappin said. “If you live in the neighborhood and you apply, you have a right to send your child to your neighborhood school.”
