NEW YORK INSTITUTE FOR SPECIAL EDUCATION’S PROM AND GRADUATION CLOSES THE SCHOOL YEAR WITH ENDLESS SMILES AND CHEERS

The New York Institute for Special Education (NYISE) closed out another successful school year with a bang, providing endless smiles and cheers during the student’s prom at the Bronx landmark Frankie & Johnnie’s Pines restaurant on June 1, and two graduation ceremonies at the school on June 20 and June 21.

Getting ready for the big night early in the afternoon, students styled their hair, pressed their outfits and had makeup applied, in preparation to party the night away. Dressed in stylish suits and elegant dresses, the students were transported to prom for a fun-filled evening of food, music and dancing.

Closing out June, proud Bronx preschoolers, and middle and high school students from NYISE’s Readiness, Schermerhorn and Van Cleve programs received their diplomas at two graduation ceremonies celebrating their success.

The New York Institute for Special Education, founded in 1831 as The New York Institute for the Education of the Blind, is one of the oldest and most respected schools in the nation that provides specialized services for children with disabilities. Located in the Bronx since 1924, NYISE provides quality programs for more than 300 students from New York City’s five boroughs, Westchester County and upstate New York, including more than 120 children from the Bronx, ages 3 to 5, who attend its preschool.
