The district has again been recognized for its outstanding music education program by the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation. Amityville joined more than 600 other districts nationwide in earning the Best Communities for Music Education distinction in 2019. 

It was the eighth time in the last nine years that the district has received this honor. For the past two decades, the Best Communities for Music Education program has acknowledged schools and districts across the country for their commitment to and support of music education in schools. The survey measured a variety of factors, including budgetary commitment to music, opportunities to learn music, the presence of highly qualified music teachers, adherence to state and national standards, types of musical experiences offered and opportunities for performance and competition.

“We are very happy that we were once included in the list of Best Communities for Music Education,” said Dr. Frances Fernandez, director of fine arts. “Our students and staff have worked diligently over the years to attain this honor. Amityville’s music program is designed to meet the needs of our students while helping our young performers make the most of their musical abilities.”
