The Hurley School takes full advantage of Boston’s rich resources in the arts. Our students take many field trips to visit the city’s museums and performing arts venues. These include programs like the Boston Ballet School’s CityDance, where students who might have never been exposed to ballet to participate in dance classes. At the Museum of Fine Arts several of our classes participate in bilingual classes in the galleries of this world class museum. The Hurley hosts local performances, including presentations offered by Young Audiences, a non-profit organization that brings professional theater performances directly to the school, and the New England Conservatory opera program, which stages an opera production for our students every year. Hispanic arts play a critical role in our programming, of course. Students learn from renowned Hispanic artists at the Jorge Hernandez Cultural Center – located just around the corner from the school – and from Hispanic writers-in-residence every year who are sponsored by the University of Massachusetts.
