Girl Be Heard is on a mission to bring the voice of female youth to the forefront of youth activism and theater arts. Through the use of storytelling, socially conscious theater making and performance, Girl Be Heard builds the leaders of tomorrow. Tapping into the unique talents of each young woman, GBH builds activists and leaders who seek to effect change in their communities and the world around them.

STEAM Rich Engagement

In addition, IS 240 is a Magnet School that means we receive additional funding to maintain a Specialized Program.  Being a Magnet School allows our community to obtain alternative resources to provide our students with opportunities to participate in a rich engagement of Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics in addition to all the other core content such as ELA, Social Studies, and Foreign Language.

Project Based Learning

We take these elements and incorporate them into Project Based Learning units where students are able to utilize their knowledge and skills to respond to authentic complex questions, problems, or real-world challenges.
