The Malverne School District has been selected as one of the Best Communities for Music Education in America for 2016 for the third consecutive year.

This designation was given to 476 districts nationwide by the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation, which helped to put together a survey that was completed by thousands of districts across the country. The districts were measured across curricular and programmatic criteria, as well as through public support of their music programs, and only the top-rated districts were chosen.

Participants in the survey answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, course offerings, extra and co-curricular opportunities, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program and other relevant factors in their communities’ music education programs.

Congratulations to the entire district music staff on this incredible honor.
