According to ScienceOfPeople.com, music can reduce anxiety and boost mental alertness and memory; two things essential to student success.
The high school has blocked Spotify, a popular music streaming app, from their WiFi.

Director of Technology and Media Services John Rizzo said that content is blocked for one of two reasons: it hinders either student safety or connection to teaching and learning. Spotify falls under the latter, which encompasses websites and applications that are not tied to curriculum and can negatively impact network performance and computer security.

However, students find that listening to music improves learning and attention. “It’s a good way to stimulate your brain and get tuned in to my work,” freshman Natalia Glinzler said.

History teacher Kyle Fleming believes that blocking Spotify will not prevent students from listening to music during school. “There are so many other music things you could listen to music on, like iTunes. I don’t think it will be effective to keep it blocked,” he said.
