• Welcome to the Fine, Visual and Performing Arts Home Page. New Brunswick is home to a vibrant arts community where every child has access to a high-quality arts program. We offer over 147 residencies district-wide from some of the top arts organizations, including , American Repertory Ballet, State Theater New Jersey, Mason Gross School of the Arts, and the Metropolitan Opera.

    We are a VH1 grantee district with over 1,000 students currently playing musical instruments. Instruction begins in fourth grade and is open to any interested student. We have a thriving jazz band and this year, we have committed to bringing back the marching band tradition. Will be performing at NBHS Football games and with the Scarlet Knights on Rutgers Band Day. In recent years, our music students have performed with Kenny Rodgers, Lindsey Stirling, Bernard Perdie, Regina Carter and participated in the grand opening of Macy's in New York.

    New Brunswick High School is host to the Fine, Visual and Performing Arts Institute, where students can explore their creative passion through over 35 electives in Music, Art, Theater and Dance. When they graduate, their course work and experience provides them with the skills necessary to audition for college programs or work in their artistic field. The preparation for the institute begins in every New Brunswick K-5/8/6-8 school where students have access to courses in Concert Band, Orchestra, Choir, Visual Design, and Graphic Design. New Brunswick Middle School (grades 6-8) hosts an academy program where students can major in Concert Band, Orchestra, Choir, Visual Design, Graphic Design, Dance or Theater.  Paul Robeson Community School for the Arts is our K-8 school dedicated to arts integration and immersive arts instruction.

    New Brunswick Public Schools is proud of our commitment to providing high-quality arts-making opportunities to all of our students.
