The School's commitment to the arts is evident in its resources. Students have access to art studios, performance halls, dance and music studios, theaters, and the Crumpacker Gallery, which exhibits work by students and by local, national, and international artists.

Regardless of a student's artistic interests and abilities, the SPS Arts Program will provide opportunity for exploration and growth.
