The dual mission of the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts is to provide each student with professional preparation in conservatory arts education and in college preparatory academic education.

LaGuardia Arts is one of the original four specialized high schools in New York City, as established by the New York State Legislature in 1972. Currently there are nine specialized high schools in New York City, and LaGuardia Arts remains the sole specialized school of the arts. LaGuardia Arts provides areas of specialization in dance, drama, technical theater, instrumental music, vocal music, and fine arts. The Fine Arts Studio is the largest of the studios, with almost 1,000 students.

LaGuardia Arts was the first school in the nation to provide a free, publicly funded program for students with unique talents in the arts. This model has been replicated in most major cities throughout the country and the world.

Over the years, the school has earned an international reputation for excellence; the accomplishments of its graduates serve as the most vivid proof of the value of its specialized programs of instruction. Alumni have distinguished themselves in virtually every field of endeavor, including the arts and sciences as well as public service and other professions.
