Whether your child is new to the arts, is involved in one of the many Fine Arts classes, including Sculpture, Photography, Film, Painting, Drawing, Theater Arts, Design & Production, Chorus, Orchestra, Band, Ellington Jazz Ensemble, Dance, and many more, or is part of our Conservatory of Music or Visual Arts program, our continued success depends on YOU. Over 90 percent of our students participate in the Fine Arts programs during the school year.
