Arts Programs
Elizabeth Gallaro, Assistant Principal

One term of art and one term of music (or one year of either art or music) are required for graduation for all students (most take the two courses in the 9th grade).

Students may fulfill the music requirement with an instrumental or general music course. In Required Art, students work with a variety of art mediums and many go on field trips to one of the outstanding New York City art museums. After completing the required art course, students may enroll in Ceramics, Computer Graphics, Advanced Drawing, or Mixed Media courses. Student work is exhibited throughout the building, including special exhibits in the 2nd floor gallery space.

Dance classes (taught by a NYS certified dance instructor through the Health & Physical Education Department) are offered in all terms to fulfill physical education graduation requirements.
