The school started as a pilot program in January 1973. Students took academic courses at their home high schools and attended Talent Unlimited in the afternoons. The director of the program was John Motley, conductor of the All City High School Chorus. The music teaching staff included Arlene Lieberman, Robert Vitale, H. L. Smith, II, Camilla Williams and Fred Norman. This first class performed at Gracie Mansion for Mayor John V. Lindsay and Marian Anderson.


It is within the Julia Richman Education Complex along with five other schools: Urban Academy, Vanguard High School, P226M Junior High Annex, Ella Baker School, and Manhattan International High School.

Extracurricular activities

The Talent Unlimited Choir has appeared on the WCBS show "Holiday in Bryant Park" in 2007 and 2008. They backed up Broadway singers Norm Lewis and Carolee Carmello in 2007, and Broadway actor Cheyenne Jackson and cabaret singer Michael Feinstein in 2008. They also performed in December 2009 on the NCM/Fathom special "The Christmas Sweater - The Road to Redemption," which aired live from Skirball Center for the Performing Arts in New York City and was hosted by Glenn Beck.
