This podcast is a companion piece to our reporting for PBS NewsHour on small school initiatives in New York City; the PBS report is embedded above.

High School for Violin and Dance principal Tanya John says “size matters” when it comes to the number of students in a school building. Smaller schools create communities that breed success for students. But it’s not just school size that counts - it’s opportunity. At her school, students are immersed in the arts - they study violin and dance every day, (98% of them have no prior training), and 92% of them go on to college.
