Center for Climate Solutions

Governors Island

Governors Island is preparing to enter its final stages of choosing its partners for the building of a historic Center for Climate Solutions on the Island. The partner organizations that will be awarded the opportunity to lead the Center will endeavor to work closely with our school and students. As a school we need to begin creating a shared vision for how we will partner with the organizations and voice should be given to students and teachers alike for this. We need your help now to begin having those discussions and getting that input so we’re ready to become active partners in this historic moment.

If you are interested in getting involved in this project, email Koko.

For more information on the Center, check out these two sites:

How about a Harbor School-Wide Symposium next year?

The Marine Biology year-end Science Symposium has been a NYHS tradition for just about every year. Students, educators, and industry professionals network. Our student scholars get to present their research projects and receive awards. It’s always a memorable, rewarding event for all.

This should be a NYHS school managed event! 

Students from all the CTEs and Science classes could present a research paper, pictures, or a talk about what they have accomplished. The event would give students an opportunity to interact professionally with pride and positivity.

But…we would need YOUR help.

Organizing. Designing. Mentoring.

Contact us if interested.

Marine Bio journey to the Bahamas

In the past, Marine Bio students have taken overseas class trips on research projects. Parents and students helped raise funds and organize. Let’s help give our rising 9th, 10th, and 11th graders this experience next year. 

The Island School in the Bahamas is a campus with full facilities & staff. Students study, research & live in an ocean surrounded learning community.

Want to make this happen? Contact us.
