Musical excellence at Malverne Schools

Posted

The Malverne School District has again been recognized by the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation as one of the Best Communities for Music Education. This is the eighth consecutive year the district has achieved this title.

Malverne is one of 686 districts across the nation to receive this honor, which recognizes the outstanding efforts of teachers, parents, administrators and community members to ensure all students are offered exceptional music education in their curriculum. The NAMM Foundation evaluates schools and districts based on their funding, highly qualified music teachers, commitment to high music standards, community support, and participation and access to music instruction.

“Many thanks to our Board of Education, central and building administration, parents, students and community members,” said Michael Messina, the district’s chairman of music, fine arts and family & consumer science. “Great job music teachers.”
