"The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a very different kind of mind... artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big picture thinkers." Daniel Pink, A Whole New Mind

Students throughout the Adrian Public School system have the chance to develop their artistic gifts through Adrian Public Schools commitment to the fine arts.

All buildings have dedicated art, choral and instrumental music rooms. The high school has a 630-seat state-of-the-art theater which is used for performances beginning with elementary school students.

Arts for All

From ceramics to printmaking to painting, K-12 students are exposed to many different experiences in the visual arts.

Beginning at Elementary (currently only at Lincoln and Michener) grade levels, students can participate in exciting Drama Programs that will have young students preforming at the High School 'PAC'. Students at  Springbrook Middle School and Adrian High School, desiring to expand their horizons even further, have the opportunity to participate in musicals and plays in the amazing Julianne and George Argyros Performing Arts Center.

Dance classes are a part of the high school experience.

Adrian Public Schools is proud to have partners as well as host presentations by local, national, and international artists, dancers, and musicians.

There are also a myriad of after-school programs and field trips at all levels which cater to the artistic and performance curiosity of students of all ages.

The annual Festival of the Arts, held each May, showcases performance, artwork, and many hands-on experiences of all kinds for students and adults in the Lenawee community.
