Eliot Arts has a rich history and a bright future. Our dedicated and diverse teachers are highly educated and experienced, inspiring and engaging students in relevant, rigorous curriculum. Eliot Arts’ teachers connect traditional subjects with real-world experience using an arts-integrated approach; rather than teaching core classes in isolation, students learn math, science, social studies, and English through arts-infused demonstrations and performance tasks.
As an innovative Arts Magnet school, we also offer array of music, dance, theater arts, and visual arts courses in state-of-the-art facilities such as our new Mac lab and video-recording studio where students learn from professionals. Our professional partners, including The Music Center, The Huntington Library, the Pasadena Conservatory of Music, and Lineage Dance, mentor our teachers and students in the classroom through ongoing artist residencies. Students also visit a wide variety of art exhibitions and performances on field trips and with their Arts Passport, a new student incentive program to promote participation in community arts. Additionally, students display and perform their own work at Harmony and Metamorphosis, our biannual showcases.
