Esther F. Garrison School for the Arts is a public, dedicated arts academy that provides a specialized arts plan for our middle school students. The program consists of stringent academic standards and high quality, professional performance. Garrison received the School of Excellence award in 2012, became a National Blue Ribbon School in September 2015, and in October 2016 Garrison was recognized by the Arts Now Network.
In addition to their academic studies, students participate in a variety of courses in the fine and performing arts. Students receive individual and group instruction in specific majors: band, orchestra, piano, vocal music, dance, theatre, and visual arts. An emphasis is placed on fundamentals, theory, and student performance. Garrison provides high-level academic subjects to stimulate the students' abilities and creative growth. Garrison students are challenged throughout the curriculum, as well as in studios, workshops, and collaborative cross-disciplinary student projects. The enthusiasm of the students and the accolades received for their performance reflect the quality of the Garrison School for the Arts' program.
