Douglas Anderson School of the Arts.

One of the nation’s premier academic high schools and an internationally acclaimed arts school? You get both at Douglas Anderson School of the Arts.

More than arts. More than academics. Our students discover their creative talent, explore their passion, and push beyond basic studies. It is hard, but it is worth it. They rise to meet the challenge in academics and the arts.

Our alumni are GRAMMY winning performers, published authors and Broadway actors. And, they are also nurses, creative directors, mechanical engineers, teachers and well-rounded great people. We prepare students for the arts and the art of life.

Artistic. Genius. Our students are both.
