Bushwick High School offers swimming and lifeguard lessons at new pool
Bushwick High School has reopened its pool for the first time in years and is offering students classes to learn how to swim and become a lifeguard.
Students say swimming pools in the area are limited, so the new one at the school has become a safe haven for those looking to learn or master swimming as a sport.
The school's first swim meet was held on Tuesday.
Physical education teachers say the pool has paved the path for more students to become lifeguards.
