History

Creativity and real-world skill-building intersect with rigorous academics at Gramercy Arts High School. Located at 40 Irving Place just a two-minute walk from Union Square in Manhattan, our location in and near thriving visual and performing arts centers in  Manhattan allows us to partner with institutions such as the Alvin Ailey studio, NY Theater workshop, the Whitney Museum, the National Arts Club, and many more. Through these, we immerse students in the arts and provide entry point opportunities to arts-intersecting professions. Our performing arts, visual arts, and capstone programs all culminate in the NYC Chancellor’s Diploma  Endorsement for the Arts and feature art classes throughout the four years of the course sequence. Our academics include nine AP courses ranging from AP Art History to AP Computer Science Principles across all subjects as well as college now partnerships with Baruch and Hunter College, bringing college coursework and credit opportunities into the core of our curriculum. Students are nurtured and supported in their journey with us through the work of three dedicated counselors and our very own College advisors to ensure that college readiness and access supports are in place for all families and students starting from the ninth grade. An array of comprehensive academic and socio-emotional wellness supports are in place to ensure that every student at Gramercy is ready for their next dignified step as they emerge as graduates and take their place as leaders of tomorrow.

Gramercy Arts High School is an inclusive place where discrimination and racism are not tolerated we foster relationships with our students so that each student is known very well by at least one adult in the building.
