Jorge Alvarez High school in Providence has been spared, it will not be shut down and turned into a middle school.

There was spirited opposition to the move during a meeting last week and school superintendent Susan Lusi apparently listened deciding to keep Alvarez open as a High school.

The plan now is to re–open West Broadway elementary school to help accommodate the influx of more than 300–middle school students into the district next year.
