ATTN: 2016/17 9th Grade Parents and Guardians!
Dear Parents & Guardians:
We are so excited to welcome a new cohort of 9th graders to Henry Street School for the 2016-17 academic year! This year we are thrilled to have a competitive group of students who have applied to attend Henry Street School, and we are pleased to be considering your student for admissions at this time. We know that during this busy application season not every student and parent has been able to visit our school and learn about the fantastic opportunities we offer our students. Therefore, we would like to invite you to attend one of our Open Houses on February 25 so that we may introduce you to our school, staff, and programming.
As a Community School on the Lower East Side, we are dedicated to educating the whole child and enabling each student to graduate college and career ready. This year we are proud to announce that Henry Street Settlement has become the CBO partner in the school, providing programming to support socio-emotional learning, enhance college readiness, promote a positive school culture, and connect families and students to concrete services. Under the guidance of a new administration and in partnership with Henry Street Settlement, Henry Street School offers a compelling option for your students’ high school experience. Here are some of the incredible offerings you can expect at Henry Street School:
Small class sizes that offer students individualized attention and an intimate learning environment
Full-time College Counselor to guide your student through the college application, admissions, and financing process (100% of students who graduate from HSS complete college applications and are accepted into school)
Expanded Learning Time to provide students with additional courses to enable them to be competitive college applicants
Engaging curriculum, including AP courses and CUNY College Now classes
Exciting elective and arts classes, including drama, music, band, journalism, and technology
An array of afterschool activities, such as a PSAL basketball team, wrestling, soccer, art, culinary arts, and more!
Mental Health services through our School-Based Mental Health Clinic and Socio-Emotional supports
Come check out our school and learn more about these and other fantastic opportunities that Henry Street School provides. We invite you to attend an Open House event with us at 220 Henry St., NY, NY 10002 on Thursday, February 25, for one of our two sessions at 9-10:30am or 6-7:30pm.
