I teach at this school and have for the last 7 years. Wow! It is packed with the most talented young people and dedicated adults in the county.

My daughter has thrived, made friends, and experienced different art forms other than her choral major. This is the middle school experience I would have dreamed of, being a local Louisvillian.

Now an Arts Magnet School (NOT just magnet "program" at a regular school), WMSchool For the Arts is the BEST kept secret in JCPS Middle Schools! Come take a tour!
