FACULTY AND STAFF APPRECIATION DINNER , THURSDAY APRIL 6, 3:00pm-6:00pm

Dear BHSEC Parents, 

Every year, the parents of BHSEC come together to provide a delicious dinner to our faculty and staff before the evening parent-teacher conferences to let them know how much we appreciate everything they do for our children.  There are three ways you can help make the dinner a great success:

  1. Send in a food dish with your child (or bring it yourself)–homemade or store bought is equally appreciated!  Deliveries can also be accepted (please put deliveries to the attention of the PTA).  Food can be dropped off with our Parent Coordinator, Carol Turitz, in the main office.
  2. If you don’t have time to cook or shop, you can just send money and we will buy food on your behalf.  Please put any monetary contributions in an envelope and have your child give the envelope to Carol Turitz in the main office.  Please be sure to put your name somewhere so we know who the donation is from!
  3. We need volunteers to help with set up, serving, and clean up on April. 6.  The dinner takes place in the BHSEC cafeteria.  You can still have plenty of time to attend conferences that evening even if you are helping out with the dinner!

PLEASE LET US KNOW HOW YOU WILL HELP BY CLICKING THE LINK ABOVE.  You can sign up for appetizers, side dishes, salads, and main courses, as well as set up, serving, and clean up help.  THANK YOU FOR WHATEVER YOU CAN DO!

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, & BECA

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.
