Performing Arts Programs

We believe that the fine and performing arts are important parts of the curriculum. Even if the majority of our students don’t go on to become professional artists, musicians, or actors, we’re confident that their exposure to the arts under our care opens their minds to the beauty our world has to offer—something that will stay with them for a lifetime.

Platteview Central Bands

Platteview Central also has a jazz band each year, featuring our finest jazz musicians.
