In addition to their academic arts courses, students can enroll in a number of exciting performing arts ensembles. Ensembles meet as regularly scheduled classes during the school day alongside academic courses. This provides an excellent opportunity for students to use their talents to the fullest while allowing the individual choice of diversifying and deepening their arts experience. For example, students can join the Rock Band while pursing Studio Art, study Acting while singing in Chamber Singers, or dedicate their time to a specific discipline by taking courses such as Music Video Dance while joining Dance Team, or by performing in the Orchestra while taking AP Music Theory.
