THE BRONX - A Bronx high school slated for closure was taken off the closure list today.

Dennis Walcott, chancellor of the New York City Department of Education, announced today that Herbert H. Lehman High School will remain open despite its poor academic performance.

Lehman was one of five schools slated to be closed because of poor report cards, but even though it received an "F" grade last year, students did not want to leave the school.

Four other schools on the chopping block are M.S. 203, P.S. 064 Pura Belpre, Jonathan Levin High School for Media and Mass Communications, and M.S. 142 John Philip Sousa.
