Ardsley Performing Arts Center
The benefits of music and art education are immense and highly beneficial to students. Music and Art positively impacts a child's academic performance, assists in developing social skills, and provides an outlet for creativity that is crucial to a child's development.
Music continued to be an important focus in our curriculum during this challenging year. Our students furthered their education, improved their skills, and shared the joy of music. Please join us in celebrating their accomplishments by enjoying each school's 2020-21 year-end performances.
