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 performing and visual arts classes and programs are among our most popular. There are also specialized Centers of Excellence in Pre-Conservatory and Vocal Music for aspiring instrumentalists and vocalists. And, there is so much more to explore!
