Before/After School Programs

Here at the Williamsburg Bridge Magnet School for Communication and Mixed Media Arts, we place an emphasis on providing learning opportunities for our students in all modern forms of communication. We believe in providing students with an appreciation of a wide variety of artistic experiences in order to develop the whole child.

Making use of Communication and various forms of Media, as well as Fine and Performance Arts, we infuse all of the strands of STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics- into our students' school day. Please read below to learn about many of our exciting Magnet opportunities!
