Fine Arts FAQs
Does the Paul Duke STEM High School fine arts teachers collaborate with feeder middle schools?
Yes, the new fine arts teachers meet with and collaborate actively with the feeder middle school teachers and with the Norcross band and orchestra teachers. The fine arts teachers in the cluster are extremely collaborative, and the Paul Duke STEM directors and teachers continue this tradition of excellence.
Does Paul Duke STEM High School encourage and support students to participate in fine arts?
Our staff encourages and supports students that are looking to advance their skills and distinguish themselves and our school through many band activities including concerts throughout the year, Large Group Performance Evaluation (LGPE), all-state band, district band, as well as solo and ensemble performances. Since Paul Duke STEM high school does not have a football team, we do not have a marching band.
Does Paul Duke STEM High School have a full band and orchestra program?
Yes. Fine arts and academics are a priority at Paul Duke STEM High School. We have full programs in these four areas of fine arts - band, orchestra, visual arts, theater, and dance - which consist of both classes and extracurricular activities.
