Looking for a new public high school in nyc....

SO. My friend is about to get her teaching certification from the NYC Teaching Fellows program. Very exciting! At the end of the program, she will be eligible to teach at a high school in NYC. HOWEVER, apparently due to some current hiring freeze, she's only able to apply to jobs at public (non-charter) high schools that have opened in the past three years. Is there some database online that lists...um... dates when particular nyc schools opened? Or, do any of YOU know of a public h.s. in your neighborhood that opened in the past couple years? We're at a loss as to how to search for these schools! Anywhere in nyc will do.

Has she tried asking the NYC Teacher Hiring Support Center for help?

Metropolitan Expeditionary Learning School (MELS) is the only public NYC high school (actually, it's a combination middle school/junior high/HS) I know of that has opened near me in the last three years. I think for the 2013-2014 school year, they'll have students up to 10th graders.

A friend of mine was recently on the job search in NYC, and she says she used this site as part of her search: Work at a New School/NYC Dept of Ed. I think that site is listing schools that opened this year, but it also has a link to schools opened in 2012.
