Librarians recommend books for self-reflection and growth
Middle School Librarian Jenn Useted knows what tweens like: realistic fiction, fantasy and graphic novels that feature young people like themselves.

Her classroom BookTalks always include recommendations of books in which students can see themselves as well as discover startlingly different life experiences.

Music Tech offers state-of-the-art encouragement & equipment
John Jay is one of the very few high schools in the region that has a four-year music technology sequence.

The hands-on classes offer students the opportunity to work with professional-quality systems and mentor Amy Geiger—the head of the music tech program—as well as become part of an encouraging and diverse community.
