Parking

Parents driving their children to school may drop off and pick up on both Tenth Avenue and 26th Street. The Department of Transportation indicates the approved drop-off/pick-up locations for schools by posting ‘No standing’ signs. Students arriving by car must exit on the curb side of the car and from the back seat. Avenues will have faculty and staff members at curbside who will help students and show them where to go.

If you want to park near the school, several parking garages are located nearby. The closest are:

249 Parking Corp – 249 Tenth Avenue (corner of 25th Street, just before the school)

GGMC – 550 West 25th Street (between Tenth and 11th Avenues)
