Band students participate in at least one adjudicated festival. Drama students perform in three productions yearly as well as compete in the Fall. Choral students perform in the community, statewide festivals, and out-of-state tours. Dance students participate and perform in local dance organizations' workshops, competitions, and showcases. The performing arts department produces a Spring musical once every two years with elementary, middle and high school students.

The Visual Arts classes exhibit their work throughout the school year and compete in private and public art competitions.
