The Stephen Gaynor School, an independent elementary and middle school for students with learning differences, unveiled its expanded facility inside a former shuttered stable on West 89th Street Wednesday.

The new middle school is the product of a larger $40 million renovation that will bridge the existing space at 148 West 90th Street with a new space inside the former Claremont Carriage House and Stables at 173-177 W. 89th St., according to the school's Director of Communications, April Starling.

The new middle school space includes 11 classrooms, five of which are now ready for 55 new students, with a total of 77 new students joining the school once all classrooms are complete. There are currently 300 students attending the school campus, which extends from West 89th to West 90th Street, just east of Amsterdam Avenue.

Middle school students, whose parents pay $49,600 a year, will start at their new school Thursday.

The landmarked stables operated for 115 years before closing in 2007; they were originally slated to be developed into nine luxury condos and a single-family house, designed by the architectural firm PKSB.
