After School Programs

Friends of the High Line offers free, weekly after-school programs at local elementary schools PS 33 Chelsea Prep and PS 41. Through arts-based workshops and regular trips to the High Line, children explore High Line ecology, park design, and the history of Manhattan's West Side. The curriculum focuses on public art and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) learning through an active investigation of the built environment, horticulture, and life-cycle around the High Line.

Local Partnerships

Local schools have a unique opportunity to engage in multi-visit programs that utilize the High Line as an extension of their classrooms, and Friends of the High Line can tailor programs to meet the needs of local educators. From a three-part history curricula to a month-long arts education program or a year-long ecology study, partnerships offer a combination of in-school visits and guided excursions.
