Horton, and Sir Issac Newton. Barringer High School, Arts High School, and Weequahic High School have new classroom unit ventilators and Air Handler Units as part of the district’s ESIP program.
Playgrounds at Peshine Avenue school, Cleveland, Thirteenth Avenue, and Hawkins Street school have been resurfaced for students.
