We offer your child everything they need to experience and explore creative self-expression in new state-of-the-art facilities. Your child can participate in exceptional, award-winning programs that provide the required fundamental knowledge skills to nurture their creative passion and lasting love of the Arts.
Research shows that after just two years of music education, students show more substantial improvements in reading scores and how the brain processes speech than their less-involved peers. Those involved in music are more likely to graduate high school and attend college as well.

High School Programs
Choosing Visual and/or Performing Arts in high school will allow your child the opportunity to develop in an environment with other individuals who share similar ideas and interests.
Tyler ISD leads the region in award-winning ensembles and performances. With so many options available, your child will be surrounded by top-performing artists and acquire skills that will lead them to success even after graduation.
An Experience Only the Arts Can Provide
We believe participation in Visual and Performing Arts should begin in early childhood and continue through formal education.
The Arts allow your child to experience and explore their creative self-expression and provide a viable, systematic curriculum that allows them to experience a true and lasting love of the Arts.
This can even promote enjoyment, involvement, and support of Arts in the community and nurture the creative passion in students seeking to pursue careers in the Arts.
