Rockwall ISD provides a high quality fine arts education that is designed to support academic, social, emotional, and creative development. This goal is achieved through a comprehensive performing and visual arts curriculum that provides a wide range of learning experiences and performance opportunities.
Fine arts education in Rockwall ISD begins in Kindergarten and continues through the high school years. In each K-6 elementary school, certified, degreed art and music specialists teach students. In the fifth grade, students may choose orchestra, and in sixth grade all elementary students may choose from band, orchestra, choir, or art as their fine arts elective. At the middle school (7-8), students may choose band, orchestra, choir, and/or theater as their fine arts elective. Fine arts courses in high school include band, orchestra, choir, theatre, dance, and piano lab.
Multi-Cultural Visual Arts Competition

Best of Show ..... Bridget Winson 9th Grade
1st Place..... Kelsie Brouillette 9th Grade
3rd Place.....Karen Rodriguez 9th Grade
Rockwall High School won three of the five ribbons awarded at the Multicultural Event.
Also the performance directed by Leia Browning's Choral group was outstanding - all sung without background music. They created the music of the rainforest with rhythm and movement. The RHS dance ensemble was equally fantastic especially the exceptional performance by Tatum Graham.
Two Students make it to the final round of competition.
Rockwall High School had 2 very talented singers make it to the final round of competition this past Saturday at TAMU-Commerce:
They began the process in July and they must pass through the Region, Pre-Area, and Area contests to make the final cut for the All State Choir. Although Logan did not earn a seat in the choir, we are extremely proud of him for making it to the final round, and for all his hard work preparing for the auditions!
Makenzie Baird is 2nd Chair in the Soprano 1 section, which is incredibly competitive! She will travel to the Texas Music Educators Association Convention next month to rehearse with all of the finest student musicians in the state and will give a concert on Saturday, Feb 11th.
Makenzie is a member of our Chorale and Walk the Line A Cappella Group and is a Stingerette here at RHS. She is a true “triple threat” and hopes to continue in the arts in college. Please congratulate her for earning the highest individual achievement in the choral arts for the state of Texas!
