Angelo Patri Middle School Faces Uncertain Future Desite Recent Gains

Parents, teachers and community members say a local school has made incredible strides in the past decade that should not result in permanent school closure. During the 1980s and 1990s, M.S. 391, also known as Angel Patri Middle School, had a reputation for drugs, violence, and gang activity. Many believe the school has made a turnaround over the last several years, and parents and teachers say the man responsible for the switch was former principal Pedro Santana, who took over the school in 2006.
