Ridge View High SchoolSchool for the Arts


The School for the Arts is designed for students who have special talents and serious interests in the arts fields - visual art, band, orchestra, chorus, dance, creative writing, and drama.  The curriculum has been designed to encourage creativity and critical thinking in all areas.  Students will be exposed to the various arts and their interdisciplinary connections as well as to the opportunities and career in the arts field.

Each student's talent will be nurtured through his/her course work.  Opportunities and encouragement will be provided to apply for special programs such as the Governor's School for the Arts and art competitions, attendance at exhibitions/performances, and mentorships with professional art organizations.  In addition, students will develop the technology skills necessary to create an electronic portfolio documenting their progress and accomplishments in their chosen area.

Students who are successful in the program will be eligible for selection for national art honor societies.  Those who successfully complete the 4-year program will have this fact indicated on their transcripts and will receive a special diploma.
