RJ Reynolds Arts for Academics Magnet School is a center for creativity, inclusivity, and exploration. Our students decide their level of arts engagement, choosing from an Arts-Intensive, Arts-Infused, or Arts-Aware pathway. We are a recognized 2022 School of Excellence by Magnet Schools of America.
Students on the Arts-Intensive track audition for placement in advanced arts courses, compete in adjudications, and are offered internship opportunities. Students on the Arts-Infused track take at least three arts electives. Students on the Arts-Aware track receive arts exposure through arts integration in classes, campus-wide performances, and creative experiential learning opportunities. Students choose from our 60+ arts electives. Talented arts educators offer our Seminar in the Arts course, introducing students to art forms through skills-based instruction in Creative Writing, Instrumental/Choral Music, Theatre/Movement, and Visual Arts. We follow the Magnet Schools of America Pillars of Excellence to guide planning/development.
