At Ranney School, expression is a crucial everyday element of a balanced education, helping us define who we are, see things in exciting new ways and communicate important ideas. With exceptional instructors and impressive facilities, our programs in drama, music, visual arts, public speaking and creative writing are designed to nurture the full range of artistic talent in every child. In every grade level, Ranney’s arts curriculum combines a broad foundation in the history and theory of art, music and drama with rigorous instruction in technique. It is complemented by an eclectic array of extracurricular opportunities on stage and in the studio. The result is a vibrant, creative community in which artistic achievement is valued as highly as academic and athletic performance.
Performing Arts. Over half of our students participate in orchestra, band, chorus, or drama programs. Each year, the school produces four Broadway-style productions and multiple concerts for the school and community.
Visual Arts. From photography and painting to glass fusing and 3D printing, one can always find the work of Ranney artists on display in one of our three campus galleries. Students, faculty and alums also regularly exhibit their works in local libraries, community centers and other local galleries.
