At McAllen ISD, we strive to create a well-rounded, complete student. Our Fine Arts department is one of the best, having been designated a “Best Community for Music Education” for two consecutive years by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation. We are one of the few districts offering a comprehensive music program that includes award-winning band, choir, and orchestra programs from 6th through 12th grade. 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, theater, or dance programs. Our students consistently earn distinction at both regional and state levels and we take pride in placing our student center-stage. So strike up the band, take up the brush, or cue the spotlight, your future beckons.
