Our projects combine musical composition with literacy-focused units focusing on writing rap, poetry, song lyrics, and personal essays. We incorporate non-traditional scoring and explore classroom and neighborhood community in our projects to foster self-esteem, creative expression, multi-cultural understanding, and musical-academic growth.
The mission of Chopin School, a Math and Science Cluster is to achieve and maintain academic excellence through a differentiated and integrated curriculum with an emphasis in Math and Literacy in all content areas.
