The knife-wielding 16-year-old boy was taken into custody and a weapon was recovered.

The Department of Education did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

The attack came just hours after two teen boys were slashed outside their Queens public high school.

The victims, 15 and 16, were knifed on their arms around 9:45 a.m. by an unknown assailant inside a park right next to Newcomers High School in Dutch Kills, police said.
