Arts Programming:
Theater, Music & Visual Arts

Because we care, we are devoted to the academic, social and artistic development of our diverse community of learners. Our goals are to awaken a questioning spirit, foster creative expression and prepare students for college. We believe that through hard work, perseverance and enthusiasm every graduate will become a life-long learner and responsible citizen of the world.

As a neighborhood school of the diverse Lower East Side, one of LoMA’s greatest strengths is its connections to community-based organizations. LoMA has developed partnerships with the following organizations and universities: New York Theatre Workshop, The Whitney Museum, St. Luke’s Orchestra, Educational Alliance, LEAP, The Park Avenue Armory, The Tony Bennet Foundation/Exploring the Arts, Early Stages and New York University. LoMA’s exemplar programs have also earned grants from the New York State Council of the Arts, The Tony Bennet Foundation and the City of New York.

putting students first

Keeping the size of our school community to less than 300 students makes it possible for LoMA to maintain an atmosphere so supportive that many of our students refer to school as a family. Yet small size is not enough to guarantee that each student will buy-in to the culture of a school that expects success from all of its members. Student government, school-wide performances, monthly school trips and planned social events are essential components for creating a sense of mutual interdependence.

We know that with LoMA’s small student population, rigorous standards, nurturing environment, arts-infused lessons and focused student-centered teaching methodologies we can be successful with each student, as we fulfill our mission to foster the intellectual and character development of our students in a learning community that emphasizes cultural awareness, critical thinking and the joy of learning.

learning today for a better tomorrow.

how we prepare students

We have a variety of specific programs to support our high-need students. To provide social emotional support for our students we have two counselors, one of the lowest counselor-to-student ratios in the city. To meet the needs of our special education students, over half of our classes are team taught following the collaborative team teaching model. Through our partnership with New York University, we have thirty tutors and five student teachers to provide one-on-one tutoring. Regular teachers also provide tutoring after school Tuesday through Friday.

opportunities for lifelong learning

Our strongest community partnership, with Henry Street Settlement, has earned us prestigious grants from Metropolitan Life Insurance and the Guild for Arts Education. LoMA’s exemplar programs have also earned grants from the New York State Council of the Arts, and the City of New York.
