Upper School

Performing Arts

The Upper School offers electives in dance, drama, speech, vocal music, instrumental music, and technical theatre. All of our arts experiences are offered in an environment where students can discover and nurture their own artistic affinities and discover their creative potential.   There is a vocal ensemble that performs twice on campus and several times in the community during the school year. Silver Strings is also available in the upper school for advanced string students with teacher permission. In addition to the music elective choices, each year there is an Upper School musical or cabaret, a fall play, a spring play, and a student directed mini course.
