The iSchool firmly believes that a well-educated student is one who pursues interests outside of the classroom. Creating ways for adolescents to connect to their school - through sports, extracurricular activities, and meaningful relationships with faculty - is a priority for the iSchool, as these connections are critically important for adolescents' development as students and human beings.
At the iSchool, our Advisory program serves as each student's primary support system, while extracurricular opportunities in athletics, the arts, and community-building enable students to pursue their passions. In addition to PSAL sports, the iSchool offers after school clubs including: Black Student Union, Gender Sexuality Alliance, Model UN, College Peer Leaders, Social Activism, Rock Band, Jazz Band, iRoof, Coding Club, Science Fiction Club, Natural Hair Club, Creative Writing Club, and the iCare Community Service Club.
Additionally, through a weekly "Programs and Opportunities" email compiled by one of our Assistant Principals, students remain informed about the many amazing programs NYC has to offer. Some of the programs iSchool students have participated in include: Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO), The Opportunity Network, Girls Write Now, LOVE (Leave Out Violence), Minds Matter, Row New York, The Possibility Project, NYU/Columbia Law Program, Cooper Union Saturday and Summer Art Programs, Sadie Nash Leadership Program, and YMCA Global Teens.
