Lower and Middle School
The arts program is an essential part of the Georgetown Day School Lower/Middle School curriculum, offering students an in-depth study of drama, music, and the visual arts. The program provides a variety of opportunities for students to develop their interests, skills, and appreciation of the arts.
Known for its strong arts program, the GDS High School offers students extensive courses in both studio and performing arts that allow for general exploration in the world of the arts as well as in-depth study. Each student is required to take two years of arts courses, one year in the performing arts and one in studio arts. Many students take 3 or 4 years of courses, some moving from basic level courses to advanced studies in one discipline, others moving among disciplines. Today, GDS alumni may be found in virtually every art field, from working artists to museum curators and gallery owners, from set designers to film and stage actors and directors.
