New York – Day 4 – Wednesday

Date: October 23, 2014 Author: Admin Categories: New York 2014, News

Today we had the opportunity to visit the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music, Arts and the Performing Arts.

This is a school for those students whose aim it is to progress into professional careers in the arts. This is ‘The Fame School’ from the TV show of that name. Stars such as Jennifer Aniston and Wesley Snipes attended here.

We were able to see budding actors, singers, musicians and artists at work and to meet with staff. It was thoroughly impressive, with students completing up to 15 hour days when rehearsing and performing. Total commitment and drive, together with lots of talent made this a very special place to see.

We were also able to go to the Department of Education offices again to hear more about school systems and processes which helped us to understand more about how schools work in the USA.

Today was a very wet and windy day – we were nearly washed away!
