The LIMHoF School Recognition Program is designed to identify Long Island High School music programs that are creating notable music experiences for their students and that are incorporating the National and NY State Standards for The Arts in creative and meaningful ways. Based on an extensive application submitted by the schools, seven high schools will be recognized by the Hall of Fame. Application categories included program details, inclusion of national and state standards for music in curriculum, facility, staffing, and community and board support. Applications were reviewed by a panel of music educators, some of whom have been recognized as LIMHoF "Educators of Note."
