Art is ethos at Vancouver School of Arts and Academics, one of the top schools in the state according to U.S. News and World Report. Here you can pirouette, even if you’ve never pliéd. Sketch the contents of your soul. Express yourself on the page. Every student in grades six through 12 has opportunities to tour different areas of the arts: visual, performing, literary, musical, moving image and recording. VSAA teachers are practicing artists who can advise on the creative process.
While creative work is at the center of the interdisciplinary curriculum, all students also study science, math, social studies and English. Advanced Placement classes in history, government, math, English and visual arts enhance college preparation. And a student-centered, project-based experience called Core imbues studies with depth and meaning.
