We are Betsy Ross, where bold creativity flows!

Students at Betsy Ross Arts Interdistrict Magnet School study dance, music, theatre and visual arts at an advanced level with certified teachers and professional artists. Our culture and school climate is safe for self-expression, which allows students to be fearless in their endeavors and creativity. We respect each other's differences and revel in all of our community's successes. Students have both Core-general arts classes and Emphasis— their major arts class— at which they will either perform or display their artwork, depending on the department. We have rigorous academics. Our R.I.S.E program embraces Respect, Integrity, Safety and Excellence.


How to Know Betsy Ross is Uniquely Right for Your Child:

○ Your child is enthusiastic about all arts modalities and has an open mind regarding trying new things, as all students are required to take dance once a week!

○ Your child has selfcontrol, discipline, focus and tolerance, all needed for artists to excel.

○ Your child has a commitment to learning and a desire to expand their knowledge artistically and academically.

What our students are saying...
