Eleanor Roosevelt High School
Eleanor Roosevelt High School
As a new school, we are actively involved in creating a stimulating educational environment with enough support from the academic community to provide students with the tools necessary to manage their lives with courage and purpose; to have a range of options for the future; to have the confidence to be creative and self-sufficient while being able to work collaboratively and while maintaining an appreciation of the world. This venture requires the collaboration of staff, students, families and the community. Together we are designing and nurturing a school that fosters life-long learning and provides students with the joy of discovery; a place where questions are as important as answers.
The purpose of Eleanor Roosevelt High School Parent Teacher Association is:
To support an interactive relationship between high school parents, staff and the surrounding community of the Upper East Side of Manhattan, including, for example, museums, non-profit organizations, charitable organizations, and colleges.
To disseminate pertinent school related information to all parents.
Encourage and support parents to participate in school governance and educational decision-making.
To create opportunities that will enable parents, staff and administration to be partners in their children's education.
Visual Art
- 9th Grade
Through the art class, students learn to unlock their creative sensibilities. They will view things in an aesthetic manner and engage in the creation of exciting visual images. They will explore a variety of materials used in the creation of art and apply this knowledge to schoolwork as well as to everyday life. The learning process will be a series of individual projects. Through this class, students discover great turning points in art history, learn about careers in art and discover social and cultural influences of art in our world.
Digital Photography - 10th Grade/11th Grade
With digital cameras and Photoshop, the class will explore the basics of photography and camera controls as well as photo manipulation. The emphasis will be on seeing and the principals and elements of Visual Art - texture, rhythm, contrast, balance, and composition. As a main project, the students will be creating an Altered book about themselves under the guidance of "Kiboko Projects" which will be shared with students in Russia and Africa.
11th Grade and 12th Grade Drama
In this course, we will build both individual performance and technical skills, and an ensemble that will produce and perform a multi-media adaptation of a Jacobean play.
Individual skills include projecting the voice and clear articulation, character movement, improvisation, paraphrasing and effectively performing verse, and making connections with literature from another time. Students will also assemble and operate the visual and audio elements of production: setting, costumes, shooting and edit the digital video portions of the production, sound effects, music, and lights.
