Exploring The Arts: New Victory Theater
Throughout the year 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classes experience a variety of exciting and educational performances at the New Victory Theater, “New York City's premier performing arts nonprofit entirely devoted to kids and families.” Performances are engaging, eye-opening, and inspiring. From bicycle acrobatics to African operas, you never know what you might experience, but without a doubt it will make you think!
Exploring the Sciences: Bronx Zoo, Liberty Science Center, NY Hall of Science
Many of our day trips are science-focused. Our school is partnered with the Urban Advantage Science Initiative which provides access to NYC science institutions such as the Bronx Zoo and the NY Hall of Science. The Bronx Zoo is a fun, Spring trip, where we explore the zoo and at least one of the special exhibits. At the NY Hall of Science, students engage in a hands-on lab activity as well as experiencing the interactive exhibits. In addition, we often take a trip to the Liberty Science Center which offers a different approach to scientific learning.
