Low Enrollment Spells End for STEM High School
The first science-focused high school on Long Island, N.Y., is slated to close in June because of a $1 million budget gap and low enrollment.
The Doshi STEM Institute, which focuses on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, opened in 2013.
Its closing will affect 46 students in grades 9-11, one-quarter less than what was needed to keep the school going. The projected enrollment for the 2016-17 academic year was only 50 students.
