From the PTA President

Dear Families,

It’s hard to believe it’s already March and we need to start thinking ahead to next year. The PTA will hold elections in the Spring for all Executive Board and parent School Leadership team positions. Please consider for running, all positions are open. Our bylaws require that we establish a separate nominating committee comprised of three parents from the general membership. This is a short term commitment that involves soliciting parent candidates by email. If you can help please email: contact@bhsec1pta.org.

Our annual Spring Benefit is set for May 7 at The Rivington Hotel Penthouse. There will be food, drinks, and an amazing auction. Please check back soon for a link to buy tickets.

Also coming up are Parent-Teacher conferences in April and the Spring Faculty Potluck. Stay tuned for a dedicated email and sign-up.

Our March meeting will include two important presentations: Equity in Education and a discussion of the dangers of vaping. I hope you’ll attend.

Thank you!

Alison Bowers
PTA President, BHSEC Manhattan

Student Stories

Writing & Thinking — Seminar Class

The Writing and Thinking Workshop is a weeklong intensive learning experience that provides Bard Early College students with exercises in critical reading and writing.

The Seminar Sequence is the signature humanities experience of the Bard Early College program. The four-semester interdisciplinary Seminar Sequence exposes students to seminal texts from antiquity to modernity, which students engage through critical reading and interpretation.

Community & Diversity

BHSEC students come from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds. In addition to a rigorous academic schedule, students are involved in clubs, sports, and other extracurricular activities.

Diversity in the student body and in the school community as a whole enriches learning experiences by broadening the perspectives both inside and outside of classrooms.

Mathematics & Sciences

The mathematics department offers students at BHSEC Manhattan a range of courses in Pure and Applied Mathematics as well as Computer Science.

The science department provides a solid background in the three basic sciences, physics, chemistry, & biology and follows the physics first sequence.

Transitions…to 9th Grade, to the College Program, & to What Comes Next

Various supports are available to help students in the high school program, in the college program, and in applying to their next school.

The Writing Center, for example, supports students who seek individualized help on class essays and college essays. Students may make appointments for one-on-one tutoring

The Bardmaticians math club, for example, also operates the BHSEC Online Math Center. Students write down their questions on this open tutoring portal and the Bardmaticians respond with guidance.

The BHSEC Manhattan library website has further information on academic supports:

Art, Music, Dance, & Drama

The various art forms are not only a vehicle for expression, but also methods of investigation and problem solving. The intuitive and sensory skills developed by engagement in the arts work in parallel with the other learning disciplines, and are part of any truly liberal arts & sciences education.
