High School for Recording Arts Portland

program date: 
Wed, 04/07/2010

Imagine a high school where art, music and culture are natural components of education rather than stand alone subjects. Where community is unified through celebration of arts and artistic expression. A school where parents and students openly communicate with teachers because every voice is valued. Imagine teenage sons and daughters coming home from school filled with pride and self-confidence, showcasing their day’s accomplishments and looking forward to the next day. Imagine their excitement when working in an internship lead by an artist or businessperson they admire. Imagine talking about life after graduation as a conversation with limitless possibilities.
