“All students are guaranteed the right to express opinions, support causes, organize and assemble to discuss issues and demonstrate peacefully and responsibly in support of them, in accordance with policies and procedures established by the New York City Department of Education. Students have the right to… publish school newspapers and school newsletters reflecting the life of the school and expressing student concerns and points of view consistent with responsible journalistic methods and subject to reasonable regulations based on legitimate pedagogical concerns.” – The New York City Department of Education. 

The Gallery is committed to upholding freedom of speech. We pride ourselves on being a student-run organization. Our publication does not reflect the views of the NYC Museum School’s administration or faculty. Our goal is to serve as an outlet for students to express themselves and to provide an educational experience in journalism. 

Our advisor is committed to producing a journalistically professional learning atmosphere and experience for the students, allowing them to make decisions concerning content of the publication, and ensuring the publications will remain an open forum.

Students are invited to send a 300-word (maximum) letter to the editors in response to stories we publish. Email submissions to [email protected]. Please note that The Gallery will not publish speech that is not protected by the First Amendment. This includes obscenities, false advertising, true threats and fighting words, as well as what the United Nations defines as hate speech, which is anything that contains “offensive discourse targeting a group or an individual based on inherent characteristics (such as race, religion or gender) and that may threaten social peace.”

Our publication reserves the right to edit letters for space, content and/or clarity. The same applies for all comments made on The Gallery’s website.
