"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

Arts for All

As part of the curriculum, APS provides elementary music and art classes to all K-5 students. Students in 6th-12th grade can enroll in Band, Choir, Orchestra, and a variety of Visual Arts classes. Adrian High School offers 2D Design, Ceramics, 3D Sculpture, Jewelry, Painting, IB Art, Photography, and Studio Art. Additionally, AHS students may elect Piano, Guitar, Drama, and Dance.

Beginning at Elementary grade levels, students can participate in exciting Drama Programs that will have young students performing 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.

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.
