Performing arts classes include:

Instruction is augmented by district-level enrichment opportunities, such as art shows, concerts, exhibitions, recitals, district honor bands, honor orchestras and honor choirs, as well as an all-district arts festival. We are also a Kennedy Center Partner and have relationships with many nonprofit arts organizations, including the Phoenix Boys Choir, Musical Instrument Museum and Phoenix Art Museum.

Our students receive national, state and local recognition for their artwork and performances. Our fine arts faculty represents the best of the profession and remains focused on providing all students the opportunities and support they need for success in the arts, and in life.
