Location and Facilities

Energy Tech is located in the vibrant community of Long Island City, Queens. It is conveniently located within walking distance of—or a short train ride to—our partner college, LaGuardia Community College. Our students will take classes at our Energy Tech location, and over time will also take classes at the LaGuardia campus as part of our early college program.  

Our 36-41 28th Street, Long Island City, Queens location is just a few blocks from the N and Q trains at the 36th Avenue stop. Students may also take the M and R trains to 36th Street, the E train to Queens Plaza, the F train to 21st Street-Queensbridge, or a range of local buses. It may be helpful to use mta.info or a similar app to map your most convenient route. Additionally, the Department of Education provides in-depth information about these routes. We currently have students commuting from all five boroughs, many of whom travel to and from school together.

We share the Q204 campus with Oliver Wendell Holmes Middle School. We are excited to share some common program interests, and are proud to announce that our campus team reduced energy consumption by approximately 20% and was awarded a 4th place prize in the 2013-2014 Energy Challenge!

Students enter the school through the main entrance located on 28th Street between 36th and 37th Avenues. Our facility is located on the ground, first, and second floors of the building, and includes spacious and print-rich classrooms, a recently renovated science laboratory and prep room, a brand new engineering laboratory, computer lab facilities, a campus-style lounge for early college students, and a range of offices and meeting rooms—including a lecture hall to be used for on-campus college coursework. We share a newly refinished gymnasium and an auditorium. Our classrooms are outfitted with current education technology, and we additionally make use of traveling laptop carts for student use.

In addition to the Con Edison Engineering Laboratory on the second floor, students make use of an engineering room and maker space in the basement, and some students travel to a maker space for fabrication science coursework on nearby Roosevelt Island through a partnership with NYC FIRST. In these spaces, students have access to a laser cutter, a CNC mill, 3D printers, a drill press, and a variety of other tools and machinery. This equipment is integrated into the coursework that students take, as well as a range of STEM-focused after school activities, such as school robotics teams.

If you have additional questions about our location or facilities, please reach out to our Parent Coordinator, Sara Mohamed, to arrange for a visit and school tour.
