The East Harlem School hosts a series of events each year to raise vital funds and to foster the culture that is core to the School's mission and curriculum.

Poetry Slam

The East Harlem School's annual Poetry Slam has been the emblematic event of our School since the tradition began more than ten years ago. On this night, thirty students take the stage to perform a piece of original poetry in front of more than 400 audience members and a panel of judges.

This year, we will be hosting the annual Poetry Slam on Zoom. There will be 15 students performing their poems in a different fashion. What better an opportunity to reach people across the world? Our aim is to showcase our students through a virtual space to share the intellect and eloquence of EHS student voices.

On Thursday, April 15th, The East Harlem school will celebrate the April 2021 Poetry Slam on Zoom from 7-8 PM.
