The Music Department in Cranston is very proud of all of our K-12 offerings, from kindergarten general music to our award-winning high school Bands, Choirs and Orchestras. Over the past few years we have integrated NCAS (National Core Arts Standards) into a newly revamped curriculum. We have also integrated music production technology throughout our general music program, have added multiple early-enrollment courses in collaboration with Rhode Island College, and currently offer two RIDE aligned diploma pathway endorsements for students at both CHSE and CHSW.
The mission of the Cranston Music Department is to graduate students who having grown through our K-12 program have experienced both music performance and music creation, are musically literate, and who become lifelong consumers of music.
