Valley Stream Central High School District breaks in auto repair program


The Valley Stream Central High School District’s automotive repair trade program has found a permanent home at Central High School this fall. The program was initially run out of the maintenance garage at Memorial Junior High School when it was introduced in the 2022-2023 school year.

This new garage is outfitted with the latest in auto repair equipment and features an attached classroom where students can learn the technical details on the complex mechanical and electrical systems of motor vehicles. This cutting-edge facility will serve generations of Valley Stream Central High School District students seeking to learn the valuable trade of automotive repair.

This program was introduced alongside new trade classes in the nursing and medical assistant fields. Backlogs on materials fueled by the pandemic, however, delayed the opening of the facility. Yet, despite difficulties, the site is ready to provide a hands-on learning for automotive students for years to come.
