Exemplary School Models and Practices Spotlight: NYC District 5

We featured this ESMP spotlight in our September 2019 newsletter.

New York City School District #5 partnered with Mentoring in Medicine, Inc. to host a program this summer for students in grades 6-8. Thirty-two students attended the program, entitled Science of Sports, where they explored biomedical professions and learned from experienced healthcare professionals and scientists from around the country.

The program employed a multi-dimensional, culturally-sensitive, and proactive approach to instruction. Participating students learned about mental and physical fitness, developed academic skills, and worked together in teams.
