The full post reads:

“Mayor Mike Spano and the Yonkers Board of Education today announced the Board’s approval to sign a 20-year lease with iPark Riverdale, LLC., to rent the Frank T. Biondi and the Ames School Buildings at the former Rising Ground property on Hawthorne Street.

In partnership with Great Point Studios, owner and operator of the new Lionsgate Studio Yonkers, the 100,000 square foot property will be the future home to Yonkers Public Schools’ new media and production magnet school.

In its new incarnation, the school, which currently houses the social services organization Rising Ground, will enroll approximately 500 students from Grades 6 to 12 and focus primarily on media and the performing arts.

The S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, will be involved in developing the curriculum, which will ultimately provide a channel for students to apply and potentially attend Syracuse University.

The yet-to-be-named school is expected to open in 2024 and Great Point Studios will manage the renovations and buildouts on behalf of the City of Yonkers.

We can’t wait to see our Yonkers Public Schools students in future blockbuster films! :star_struck:
