Welcome to the McAllen ISD Fine Arts Department.imgres

NAAMimgres-1

At McAllen ISD, we strive to create a well-rounded, complete student. Our Fine Arts Department is one of the best, having been designated as one of the “Best Communities for Music Education” every year since 2013 by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation. We are one of the few districts offering a comprehensive fine arts program that includes award-winning band, choir, orchestra, theatre art and visual art programs from 6th through 12th grade. We also offer very successful mariachi and dance programs at all of our comprehensive high schools. In addition, our elementary schools employ degreed and certified music teachers from Kindergarten through 5th grade.

Studies show that students involved in the arts tend to be better performers in school. If music is not your thing, join one of our fabulous visual art, theatre or dance programs. Our students consistently earn distinction at both regional and state levels and we take pride in placing our students center-stage. So strike up the band, take up a brush, or cue the spotlight, your future beckons.
