    Best Communities  


    New Hartford Central School District has been selected as one of the Best Communities for Music Education in the country for 2018 by the American Music Conference. Founded in 1947, the American Music Conference is a national non-profit Music Education Association that supports the cause of music education and music research. The results are based on a Web-based survey of teachers, school and district administrators, school board members and parents and community leaders across the country. The opportunities created for our students by our administration, music staff, and community support have resulted in high standards of performance in the Arts. The award is a testament to the continued support of our community, parents, administrators, teachers and our student body who value music and the arts as a vital part of our curriculum We are deeply honored to have been awarded this recognition.
