At Minnehaha, every student is an artist. In Middle School, students choose from yearlong programs in choir, band, and strings, along with classes in art, drama, and general music. These courses prepare students for the many Upper School arts opportunities available in choral groups, bands, orchestra, and theater, as well as visual arts classes in drawing and painting, graphic design, photography, film, sculpture, and ceramics. Arts thrive at Minnehaha – and so do our artists.
