Unused instruments collecting dust?

If you have unused musical instruments taking up space in storage, please contact the District office or your neighborhood school for information on how to make a tax-deductible donation that can help a deserving student.  Band & orchestra instruments, guitars & ukuleles, hand drums, and small percussion are all needed.

Instruments wanted for donation

Arts education is a big part of building a 21st century creative mind, and I think that we have let way too many kids lose their way by not drawing in their young minds with music, dance, painting and the other various ways we can express those things we do not have words for. ~ Heather Watts

Where are my student's programs?

The schools at Newport- Mesa are divided into 5 major zone areas. The areas are based off of the 4 Comprehensive High Schools that our middle schools and elementary schools feed into.

We also have a set of school sites that are specialty schools. Many of these schools have special programs that are not related to those programs at a comprehensive school. These particular school sites are marked as Specialty school sites. There are arts opportunities at every site no matter the specialty.

Please click on the specific zone that links with your child's school site.

There is evidence that shows that a well rounded arts program contributes to higher student engagement, a positive school climate and provides opportunities to cognitively stimulate the brain which will lead to higher test scores.
