“It is always a very good day when you get to break ground on a brand new school,” said Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer. “The children of Woodside deserve nothing but the very best.”
The new school comes at a time when overcrowding in the neighborhood has become a serious issue, as the population in western Queens continues to rise.
“This school is a desperately needed addition to the community,” said Assemblyman Michael DenDekker.
The school will feature 22 standard classrooms, two special education classrooms, an art room and gymatorium. It will also feature a general use playground and an early childhood playground.
Construction on P.S. 339 began in September, and should be complete in September of 2015.
