8th Grade Parents: Is your child imaginative or artistic? Would s/he benefit from instruction that recognizes her/his creative temperament and strengths? If you answered yes, then the Arts Magnet program at Irvington might be the perfect fit!
As members of the Arts Magnet program, ninth-grade students participate in the Center for Creative Arts academic “family.” In these classes, the core curriculum is enhanced by arts-based activities that target the students’ artistic strengths. All students have the opportunity to excel, both artistically and academically. Students in the CCA have shared interests and a common bond with their classmates and teachers, creating a rich and exciting high school experience. Students in the Arts Magnet program are also expected to take advantage of Irvington’s diverse elective course offerings in the arts. At IHS, there is an artistic opportunity for everyone from the curious beginner to the most advanced artist. Visual arts courses include Photography, Sculpture, Drawing, and Digital arts. In the Performing Arts, students can take classes in Drama, Stagecraft, Dance, Choir, and Band. Irvington, in partnership with Ohlone College, offers the most advanced arts classes in the district, in both the Visual and Performing Arts. Magnet students often participate in Irvington Conservatory Theatre productions, both behind the scenes and on the stage. Artists, actors, musicians, and technicians are given the chance to hone their skills for a live audience.
