We offer a unique program that uses the city's museums to enrich the curriculum. We currently partner with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of the City of New York, Japan Society, the Rubin Museum of Art, and Museum of the Moving Image, who each become extensions of our classrooms, affording the hands-on experience needed to make learning deep, challenging, and engaging. By studying in class, museums, and other institutions, students learn to emulate the work of scholars in the fields of science, history, technology, and the arts. Classroom instruction draws upon learning that takes place in the field, and deepens it with content that compels questioning, reflection, and insight.
