Top 2018 Test Scores in NYC!

We did it again!

Dear all,

I’m delighted to write you today to share some wonderful news about Special Music School.

The New York City Department of Education recently announced its highest performing schools during the 2017-18 school year. We are delighted to report that once again, Special Music School was ranked as the #1 elementary school in New York State, based on state test results. The School was ranked as the #2 middle school. More details about the rankings are here.

Our students’ exceptional performance is a testament to the outstanding education they are receiving at Special Music School. This speaks to the remarkable role that music education plays in enabling academic achievement.

The success of our students would not be possible without the partnership of everyone in this community, working together, to encourage them to thrive – including academic teachers, music faculty, parents, supporters, and staff. Thank you for your commitment to helping our students succeed.

Congratulations to our students and families!


Kate Sheeran
