Once again, the Amherst Central School District has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation in 2023 from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. Amherst was one of 830 school districts across 43 states recognized for the outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community leaders and their support for music education as part of a well-rounded education for all children.
Designations are made to districts and schools that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education. Amherst has received the designation six times in the last seven years. Amherst’s application was submitted with input from all music teachers, and included information on class sizes, budget, instrumental, choral, and general music curricular offerings, staffing, daily, weekly, and monthly instructional time.
