What makes Tara Performing Arts High School so remarkable? We’re intentionally small, so all students get the attention they deserve. Academics are taught in intensive blocks, providing learning that is deep and thorough. Stage Combat and professional theatre attendance are as much a part of the curriculum as Algebra and Physics. In four years, students go (twice!) to NYC for a week of Broadway plays and great museums, they explore Anasazi lands with a Native American guide, and they travel in Austria and England for a month, experiencing firsthand the history, art, music and architecture they’ve studied. Performance is at the heart of all we do: creating ensemble in each class and the entire school as well as on stage, and building the confidence to stand up and sing out – both literally and figuratively – in all students, whatever their future plans. Our graduates are accepted at an impressive array of colleges and universities. And Tara is 100% substance-free.
Please help us collect books to create a library and inspire the love of reading at a disadvantaged middle school in Texas where a Texas alum teaches. For appropriate titles, see www.goodreads.com/shelf/show/middle-school (The Giver and The Outsiders are already amply represented). Financial contributions to this and our other Michaelmas (Boulder flood-related) projects will also be gratefully received.
