1 The dual mission of our extraordinary specialized high school is to provide to each student professional preparation in atelier and conservatory arts education and college preparatory academic education. School Mission Our Heritage A Tradition of Excellence in Academic and Arts Education Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts enjoys an international reputation as the rst and foremost high school dedicated to nurturing students gifted in the arts. LaGuardia Arts continues to be the model for schools of the arts throughout the world because we provide a uniquely balanced educational experience that includes both rigorous conservatory-style training and a challenging, comprehensive college-preparatory academic program. Our conservatory programs are: Art, Dance, Drama, Instrumental and Vocal Music, and Technical Theater. The LaGuardia Arts heritage dates back to 1936, when Mayor Fiorello H. LaGuardia established a school to serve as a haven for students gifted in the arts. The present LaGuardia Arts was created by the consolidation of two illustrious schools: The High School of Music and Art and The School of Performing Arts (the “Fame” school). In 1984, we moved to the state-of-the-art building at Lincoln Center that was designed especially for us and provides world-class facilities, including: a 1,150-seat concert hall; a 450-seat theater; a 150-seat black-box theater; art, dance, and instrumental studios; a recording studio; an art gallery; and science and computer laboratories.

Good Teaching requires both assessment of learning and assessment for learning. Assessments of learning ensure that teachers know that students have learned the intended outcome. Assessment for learning enable the teacher to incorporate assessments directly into the instructional process and to modify or adapt instruction as needed. These formative strategies must be design as part of the planning process. This book will show examples of such formative strategies used in a SETTS class.
