About Our School
Visualize a public high school with a deep-rooted passion for pursuits both artistic and academic; a high school with a long and distinguished history of producing talented, creative individuals who pursue their dreams with a fervent desire to make a difference; a visual and performing arts high school established in 1931, the first of its kind in the United States.
As the artistic flagship of the Newark Public Schools, today’s Arts High offers a rigorous program for grades 9-12 in dance, drama, music, TV production and visual art. The interdisciplinary studies in which our students participate enable post-secondary matriculation to many of the best conservatories, colleges, and universities in the country.
