Fine and Performing Arts Department Staff
About Fine and Performing Arts at RMHS:
Arts are our human birthright—every culture throughout time and across the globe has them. As opposed to being the purview of the talented few, the arts are essential throughout everyone’s lives for understanding and appreciation, expression, social and emotional well-being, and creative opportunity.
At Reading Memorial High School, there are numerous course options for students who wish to participate in the arts, including such diverse entry-level classes as Sculpture, Acting I, and Basic Guitar, among others.
Students are required to take and pass at least two courses (four credits) in the fine and/or performing arts (visual arts, drama, and music). In addition, there are more intense sequences of study for dedicated students and those considering the arts as a career.
Students may also choose to participate in many of the extra-curricular activities and performance ensembles offered after school, such as Marching Band, Color Guard, Drama Club, Harmonium, and RMHS Singers.
