Students that complete a full year of violin classes are eligible to enter the intermediate orchestra in sixth grade. Our violin players perform annually at our fifth grade promotion ceremony.
Flight Club is an eight week tuition-based after-school sessions of selected First Grade students in Northside Independent School District. It is an engineering program where students work in teams or individually to design, test, and interact with air-kites, parachutes, paper airplanes and simple rockets.
