A New York City private school founded by members of the Blue Man Group performing-arts troupe will close its doors after the end of school year after a “significant decline” in enrollment.

The Blue School, located in Manhattan’s Financial District, will cease operations at the end of this summer. The Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School will offer admission to every rising PK4 through 8th grade student displaced for the 2023-24 school year, according to a statement on the Blue School’s website.
