Students learn the fundamental building blocks of art and how it relates to all art media. Those that have prior experience with art will have opportunities to advance their level to suit individual needs, while beginners will be able to accomplish new goals.
A variety of art styles and materials will be used, such as paint, sculpture, collage and drawing. All grades will have the opportunity to display their work in school as well as outside if they are inspired to take the extra step to enter contests throughout the year.
Art club is available for those who would like to spend more time on special projects and developing portfolios for art high schools. The artists get to visit museums such as The Brooklyn Museum of Art, MOMA and The Met.
Our Athletics talent program is aligned with the New York State Learning Standards for Physical Education. Our Magnet Program focuses on the history of sports, strength conditioning, cardiovascular training, speed and agility exercises. Athletics instruction prepares our students to work as a team, develop healthy personal fitness habits and track their fitness goals now and throughout their lives. Students develop good sportsmanship, leadership skills, and a strong work ethic leading to success in high school, college and beyond.
