Speech Spotlight

Posted in General

Joanna Lamb has been Baruch’s speech-language pathologist since November 2016 and has been with the DOE since 2010.

She holds a BFA in Theater from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and an MS in Speech-Language Pathology from Adelphi University. Ms. Lamb loves that her job is never boring and always brings new challenges. She particularly enjoys working directly with her students on vocabulary, grammar, and conversational skills as well as collaborating with her colleagues.

Ms. Lamb is at Baruch Mondays and Wednesdays and when she’s not here, she is evaluating students all over Manhattan for speech services. After school, she provides speech therapy for adult and geriatric patients. While her career goals shifted after college, she still enjoys watching and performing in theater during her free time. Ms. Lamb can be reached at


Course of Study Selection and Advance Placement AP Opportunities

Posted in General

All courses at BCCHS are taught at an honors level. Each subject is designed with a course sequence, laying a foundation in 9th and 10th grades, and preparing students for advance coursework in 11th and 12th grades.

Requirements and options may vary by subject and year.

Advance Placement AP English is built into the curriculum in 11th and 12th grades and students may opt to take the AP Exam.

In other subjects, such as Math, Science, History, and Spanish, AP is an elective or additional course offering.

Students complete a year of visual arts and have the opportunity to complete a 3 year Visual Arts sequence.

There are additional requirements for Physical Education, Advisory, and Community Service.

Review BCCHS subject course sequence, requirements, and options with your child.
Discuss which Advanced Placement AP classes they would like to prepare for.
Students in grades 10 and 11 will fill out an interest survey in Advisory this week.
Entrance criteria and applications will be sent to those students in grades 10 and 11 who indicate interest on the survey.
