New Visions Charter High School for the Humanities IV

Arts and humanities focus

The Downside

Too soon to say

New Visions Charter High School for the Humanities IV, opened in 2017, shares the Beach Channel Educational Campus with three other small schools.

Humanities IV is modeled after the first New Visions Charter School for the Humanities that opened in September 2011 in the John F. Kennedy building in the Bronx, offering a challenging curriculum to prepare students for careers in education, the arts, public service and media. New Visions for Public Schools, a nonprofit founded in 1989, has worked with the Department of Education and community partners to create more than 100 small schools in New York City.

Students wear uniforms and class size is small with an average of 20 students. Classes run from 8 am to 3:40 pm four days a week with a shorter day on Wednesday, ending at 12:45 pm, to allow for staff professional development. Students take classes in visual and performing arts and choose one focus area in 10th grade. Advisors meet with their students daily. After school clubs vary but HUM IV offers a unique astronomy club with high quality telescopes. Students take frequent trips in the city and overnight college trips. Students attend a summer program before 9th and 10th grades. 

Students are encouraged to try out for PSAL teams on the Beach Channel Campus.
