High Tech High School's Award-Winning Performing Arts Program consists of the following programs: Dance, Drama, Music & Audio Technology, and Musical Theatre. Students audition while in 8th grade and commit to one of these four majors throughout their four years at High Tech. Students will study closely with their primary instructors (who are professionals in their own fields), as well as outside professionals.
Just as productions require teamwork, Performing Arts students frequently work collaboratively, and there will be many times when majors overlap and students work together on interdisciplinary projects. The Performing Arts curriculum is developed around a central theme: strong support from teachers that allows students, through individualized instruction, to shape their own educational experiences and accomplishments in the context of a challenging, exciting and fun environment.
