Area high school students looking to immerse themselves in the arts, need look no further than the Perpich Center for…More Arts Education, (also known as Arts High School). The school is a tuition-free, public high school open to 11th and 12th grade Minnesota residents.
Arts High School students take part in a rigorous academic program and receive intense coursework focused in six art areas: dance, literary arts, media arts, music, theater, and visual arts. Students have to select one of those programs as their primary focus of study. The graduates of Arts High School have gone on to win prestigious awards, and work at such places as the Cartoon Network and Saturday Night Live. Dorms are also available at the school for students who live far from campus.
