Another new public school to start construction

JERSEY CITY – Mayor Steven Fulop, in collaboration with the Jersey City Public Schools and the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency, unveiled plans on Tuesday for the state’s first public school located in private, residential high-rise housing, to be built as part of a $370 million housing development on Christopher Columbus Drive.
The project will feature a two story, 35,000 square foot public school accommodating 200 Pre-K, kindergarten, and first grade students, addressing the growing demand on the public school system.
This will be the second public educational facility constructed with private dollars and the fourth school to commence construction overall since 2013.
