School Leadership Team Meetings 2014/2015
These dates are all tentative!
On behalf of the exceptional faculty and staff of Edward R. Murrow High School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2014-2015 school year. We are very proud of the 40 years of educational excellence that has come to define our community and we are eager and excited to continue our efforts to make Edward R. Murrow High School the best comprehensive high school in New York City.
“Edward R. Murrow High School is a large community with a small school feeling” (NYC Schools Chancellor – 4/4/2013). Our community consists of individuals who are committed to providing the CARE needed to prepare all students to be COLLEGE READY, CAREER READY, and LIFE READY (Edward R. Murrow High School was one of twelve schools featured in last year’s NYC DOE “School Time Lab Report” as a school that prepares students for college and careers). I am also proud to announce that our community will have the opportunity to share our best practices and collaborate with other schools throughout NYC as we have been selected to be a part of the Chancellor’s Learning Partners program. In addition, several of our teachers’ exceptional classroom practices will be showcased on the NYC Dept. of Education’s Interactive Rubric later this year.
This commitment extends well beyond our classroom walls. With a wide range of award winning teams, clubs, activities and events in addition to our renowned visual and performing arts programs (Edward R. Murrow High School was featured in last year’s “Annual Arts Survey” as a school that offers exceptional instruction in the arts), Edward R. Murrow High School affords all students the chance to feel involved and invested in their high school experience.
This year our efforts will continue to add to our students’ overall learning experience with a state of the art Planetarium, our first CTE approved program (Virtual Enterprise), the development of a new TV Studio program, a courtroom to further enhance our Law Program, and a Writer’s Institute. I invite you all to explore our website (ermurrowhs.org) to follow all the wonderful news and announcements of our community and learn more about the tradition of excellence that sets our school apart from other schools in New York City.
… because at Edward R. Murrow High School, we CARE about our students!
