Award Winning Arts Program

  • Child Playing ViolinDiscover the extraordinary world of art at East Millbrook! Our nationally recognized arts program offers eight diverse visual and performing arts disciplines, allowing students to explore creativity. With nearly 100 electives available, students can pursue their passions and immerse themselves in three electives daily. We are the only school in WCPSS to offer the Guild Experience, a unique 90-minute double period arts elective for in-depth collaboration.

    Our exceptional faculty and frequent guest artists provide real-world insights and experiences. Beyond school, students showcase their talents in the community through performances and competitions. Student artists get the opportunity to go on special trips. In the spring of 2022, Guild students experienced a four-day arts immersion trip to New York City.

    At East Millbrook, we believe in the transformative power of the arts, and our goal is to provide an enriching environment where students can flourish creatively. Join our esteemed arts program and unlock your child's artistic potential today.

Design Thinking New in 2023!

  • Students working in a groupDesign Thinking is a powerful framework that encourages students to approach problem-solving with empathy and creativity. Throughout the learning process, students will be guided to identify, define, and ideate solutions to various challenges. They will create prototype models to address these challenges and then rigorously test their solutions.

    By engaging in regular design challenges, students will have ample opportunities to showcase their creativity and inventiveness. When presenting their prototypes, students will have the freedom to express their ideas through various creative vehicles, whether it be digital presentations, monologues, PSAs, or other innovative forms of artistic expression.

    Design Thinking will not only empower students to address the needs of others but also equip them to solve the problems of tomorrow, making their creativity and ingenuity tangible and impactful.

    At East Millbrook, we believe that the integration of Design Thinking will provide a powerful structure for artistic expression while providing rigorous learning opportunities.
