Clinton School For Artists and Writers/MS 260
We began our partnership with Clinton Middle School in February 2015. The Clinton School uses an arts-integrated curriculum that allows students to work across disciplines. The school moved to a new building near Union Square in fall 2015 and added a ninth grade. They will expand to a complete 6-12 grade school in the following years. Students in grades 6-9 have participated in Guided Visits and multi-part programs.

Seventh and eighth graders participated in our Community Art Project with artist Lize Mogel. In fall 2015 the school moved from West 33rd Street to a new building on East 15th Street close to Union Square. Prior to their move, students created a collaborative map of key items they would miss—such as stores and places they go to eat—as well as things they look forward to in their new neighborhood.
