Our Manhattan schools have made continued investment in technological classroom resources this year and have embraced a variety of new instructional techniques to enhance teaching and learning.

For instance, the Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) pilot program implemented this year is particularly exciting because of its ability to promote highly individualized and customized learning for our students. This method of assessing academic progress allows our teachers to measure both individual student progress and overall class performance. Lesson plans can then be tailored to challenge all students accordingly.

Additionally, for the first time, this year many of our Manhattan schools have instituted computer coding and programming classes into their curriculum. Thanks to a generous private donation, Incarnation School in Washington Heights joined Transfiguration School, Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Stephen of Hungary in offering computer programming and coding courses.

Our Lady Queen of Martyrs (OLQM) in Inwood has also capitalized on its unique facility by implementing an experiential biology program. Besides housing a greenhouse on the roof of the school building, OLQM encourages interactive learning with its “animal friendly atmosphere” and introduces students to meteorology by incorporating a “WeatherBug” station into their science curriculum.

Coupled with the region’s strong foundation in faith, innovative curriculum enhancements like those mentioned above, underscore the Manhattan region’s commitment to equipping our students with the necessary skills to compete in our global economy.
