The New Preparatory Middle School in Jamaica will once again be known as JHS 8 when it returns to School District 28 next fall after four years in the Chancellors District.
They changed it because of its progress and their faith in District 28, said Ron Levine, a spokesman for the school district.
The schools principal, Ainslie Cumberbatch, declined to comment on the change.
During summer school, The New Preparatory Middle School for Technology and the Arts at 106-35 167th St. in Jamaica will remain under the control of the Chancellors District, a form of administrative intensive care.
By the end of August, the school will be ready to change hands, Levine said, but for now it is still the same school today as it was before the paper changed hands.
We arent doing anything except preparing to take it over in the fall, Levine said, adding that the chancellors staff and Community School District 28 would collaborate for about a year to facilitate a smooth transition.
