About the Partnership

Building upon the success of a pilot program, Teach with O’Keeffe, the Whitney and West Side Collaborative (WSC) Middle School 250 extended this year-long collaboration (2009-2010) into a long-term partnership. Museum educators and WSC staff continue to work together to develop innovative teaching practices centered on inquiry-based instruction and explore various approaches to arts integration.

Through this partnership, we aim to empower WSC students, staff, and parents to take advantage of the rich and vibrant cultural resources available to them as residents of New York City.
