Visual art students, at all grade levels, share their talents in many community projects.Their work is showcased not only around the school bu also in many community projects; murals and windows for Central Public School and the Cornwall Public Library are just some examples. Our visual art students also participate in art exhibits; such as the Cornwall Regional Art Gallery's Annual Student Art Show.
Music students who are enrolled in band classes perform concerts and entertain at local functions. Vocal Ensembles, Concert bands and jazz bands have competed in regional and national competitions, and the end result is frequently the “Gold” standing.
