Walk through our hallways at any time of day or evening and you will hear committed, passionate musicians practicing their craft. Check out our visual arts spaces and you are likely to find students painting, sculpting, or digitally editing their work.

All our students are engaged in the arts. At a minimum, they take one arts elective each year. But, the majority of our students are eager to sing, act, dance, play an instrument, get their hands dirty in pottery, and learn to work a video camera. Without a doubt, our arts classes and programs are among our most popular. There are specialized Centers of Excellence in strings and vocal music. And, there is so much more to explore.
