Educational
Partnerships

When students come to the High Line, the park becomes a case study and laboratory—a place to inquire, experiment, analyze, and discover.

Educational programs at the High Line take an interdisciplinary and place-based approach, partnering with schools to offer hands-on explorations both during the school day and after-school, with a mix of in-classroom workshops and park visits. These programs serve nearly 10,000 students annually, including through after-school programs and school partnerships.

In-school partnerships

The High Line can be an extension of your classroom. We collaborate with educators to create interdisciplinary curricula that reflect students’ needs and school learning goals. We’ve most recently worked with teachers at PS 41, PS 33 Chelsea Prep, and PS 245 in Flatbush to offer social studies units in “Community Change,” using primary source materials, oral history told by “Neighborhood Buddies,” green STEM activities, and investigations of the park’s design.

Artist Scientist after-school program

We offer free, weekly, after-school programs for students from our neighborhood elementary schools, PS 33 Chelsea Prep and PS 41. Children explore ecology, park design, and public art, becoming “Artist Scientists” through a curriculum focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM learning). The program includes arts-based workshops, regular trips to the High Line, and meetings with High Line staff who are engineers, gardeners, and curators, who share the real-life applications of what students are learning.

'' Thank you for this great program. I am delighted to hear it is being expanded to Brooklyn. Showcasing people from the community is really important, especially for students of color. '
