Welcome to the Scarsdale High School Performing Arts Department. It is here that you will find information for the music and theater programs.
It is our goal to have a program that is rich in offerings that reach the high performing musician and actor, and are involved in the STEAM curricular initiative within the building. We are duly focused on serving those with a casual interest in these areas. We utilize the National Core Arts Standards of implementing Creating, Performing, and Responding to music and the arts on a daily basis. Please refer to our course catalog to see the wide array of courses we present to accomplish this.
We are proud of our department and our success, as the high school serves as the flagship of our outstanding K-12 program. This is evidenced by being honored with six straight years of recognition as Americas Best Communities for Music Education as declared by the NAMM listing. We have been fortunate enough to have students that regularly represent SHS at chamber music festivals, and also regional, state, and national honors festivals.
Our ensembles perform internationally to reach out to their passionate counterparts throughout the world. These connections with students and musicians who might communicate only through their shared universal language is an exceptional experience, and is consistent with the district goals of success in an interdependent world.
Please feel free to explore the program with the links below. I am confident you will be impressed with the work you see being accomplished by our staff and students.
