The Department of Education has threatened closure of the Frederick Douglas Academy II Middle School and Wadleigh Middle/High School for the Performing Arts

Many believe that the answer lies in the DOE’s desire to clear out space in advance of next year’s planned Harlem Success I expansion into the Wadleigh/FDA II building.  The closing of these schools, however, would result in the loss of hundreds of desperately needed D3 middle and high school seats, the destruction of solid FDA II and Wadleigh programs with increasing enrollment and prospects, and the diminishment of choice for our community and the schools’ current students –a percentage of which have special needs and therefore can’t and some say won’t be accommodated by the planned Harlem Success I expansion or by any charter. 

The parents and the Harlem community is fighting the DOE on these measures, we would like you to PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION!  Help us fight for our children's future.  Many of these children will be dislocated and have no other schools to go to.  There are only so many seats available for this ever growing community.  New families are coming in monthly and there is not enough space to accommodate these new children.  Where are these children who already belong to these two schools going to go? It is estimated that there are over 800 children in this building combined. One Common Goal, to keep the schools open.
