Every Highlander receives premier musical, dramatic, and fine arts training that leads to lively public performances and shows, and inspires students to discover the artist within themselves.
Lake Highland’s comprehensive curriculum offers students dynamic instruction in the fine and performing arts. Our talented arts faculty members, many of whom are professional artists themselves, provide our students expert teaching in every artistic discipline. Students often discover a unique ‘voice’ participating and performing in the arts at LHPS, whether in chorus, band, orchestra, dance, or drama. Fine arts classes in painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, and photography allow Highlanders to express themselves and experiment with various artistic media. The results are moving and inspiring.
The Lake Highland family celebrates the arts each spring during The Arts Festival, a week designed to highlight art, dance, drama, and music, and to foster within our students an appreciation for the arts. Scheduled events include juried art shows of student works, interactive workshops, and exhibitions by community artists.
We are intensely proud of the artistic accomplishments of our gifted students. Many of our graduates pursue their artistic passions in college, and some are called to careers in the arts.
Lake Highland’s main campus features one of Central Florida’s finest performing arts facilities, the Harriett Coleman Center for the Arts, affectionately called the Harriett. Built in 2009, the Harriett features a state-of-the-art auditorium that seats 776, the Johnny Holloway Blackbox Theatre, dressing rooms, a green room, and a stagecraft classroom. The Bourne Family Chapel at the Charles Clayton Middle School campus is another beautiful facility that is home to many performances and assemblies.
