Our Community

The Clinton School for Writers and Artists is a small public school (about 350 students) located near Union Square in New York City. Our school is at 10 East 15th Street, New York, NY, between Union Square and 5th Avenue. We moved to our new building in time for the start of the 2015-16 school year and with our first 9th grade class in our expansion from a middle school to a 6–12 school.

The Clinton School for Writers and Artists enhances student achievement across content areas. We provide equality of opportunity for a diverse student body. Students engage in authentic learning that demands flexible thinking, risk-taking, and collaboration as they produce and perform, growing as members of a community.

At Clinton, we promote a caring, supportive environment for learning—where students, staff, and teachers treat one another with courtesy and respect.

Clinton is known for its friendly environment and welcoming culture. Students, staff, and families have a passion for our school and love cheering on our sports teams, attending our performances and events, and taking advantage of our partnerships with the Whitney Museum, Dancing Classrooms, and Theater for a New Audience.
