MET Students Travel to NYC, Embrace Broadway and the Arts

If you are a student with a passion for the arts, there is no better trip you can take with classmates than to New York City. Sixteen students from the Metropolitan Arts Academy took in all that the city has to offer during a four-day trip over spring break.

During their trip, they visited all the major sites, including the 9-11 Memorial, Times Square, Central Park, the Statue of Liberty, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art all while traveling the subway system.

The highlight for many students was the opportunity to attend workshops with Broadway professionals and see a Broadway show. Not coincidentally, they saw 'Aladdin' which was the school’s spring production, viewed by the community last week.

The Metropolitan Arts Academy is an innovation school with a focus on visual and performing arts that is open to students from around the region. The MET provides a solid, well-rounded competency-based curriculum with a special emphasis on the arts.

Check out the pictures below and a student film by Luis Maza Bustillos that captured the excitement of a memorable trip.

Also of note, 8th-grade students from Westminster Academy for International Studies traveled to Panama for their class capstone project. We will have more on their exciting trip in the next issue of “What’s Up WPS.”
