The arts programs available at Ditmas I.S. 62 are primarily available through The Institute for Academics, Performing and Visual Arts where the mission is to foster the natural creative potential of all students by offering a core study program of Dance, Band, Keyboard, Visual Arts or Graphic Arts over the course of their 3 years at IS 62.
Each program adheres to the NYC Blueprint for the Arts and the New York State Standards. In addition, students are exposed to a variety of cultural events that provide enrichment and awareness of the global community.
It is our hope that students flourish holistically and that they gain the inspiration needed to foster their individual creative interests as they become young men and women, through exposure and mastery of both the arts and academics.
