• The Performing Arts are a vital part of a complete education. Students studying music, dance, and theater become creative decision-makers and learn powerful ways to communicate ideas, thoughts, and feelings.

    The Roxbury School District has a thriving Performing Arts Department in which students participate for multiple years in General Music, Bands, Orchestras, Choirs, Dance Classes, and Music Theory Courses through to the Honors and AP Levels.
