Our joyful and supportive community values artistic achievement and the self-discovery it facilitates. Energized by the passion and dedication of our young artists, we aim to be always better, to foster a culture of excellence, and to find more meaningful ways to connect with our community.
Our students and alumni have been recognized for their artistry both within our community and beyond, earning recognition from a multitude of local, state, and national arts organizations. Our students are winners of the US Presidential Scholars in the Arts, National YoungArts Foundation, Silver Knights Awards, Cappies Awards, and International Percussive Arts Society; to name just a few. Our alumni have earned acceptance into distinguished institutions such as the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, Eastman School of Music, New England Conservatory, and Rhode Island School of Design.
Our faculty of brilliant arts educators and teaching artists inspires our students through their expertise as active performers and creators. They continually seek to hone their skills as arts educators through participating in notable programs such as Harvard Graduate School of Education’s: Project Zero and the Arts and Passion-Driven Learning Institute.
This year we are thrilled to launch our groundbreaking collaboration with The Juilliard School. The Juilliard-Nord Anglia Performing Arts Program enriches our performing arts curriculum and students’ learning with the artistic values, traditions, and expertise of Juilliard. We will truly learn with Juilliard. Juilliard affiliated curriculum specialists, teaching artists and touring performers will visit NBPS on a regular basis, inspiring our school community through workshops, master classes, and performances.
Collaboration is essential to our culture. Our cross-arts and arts-integration projects encourage the breaking down of walls between and among arts and academic disciplines, promoting innovative thinking and making learning more meaningful and memorable. Equally important are community collaborations through which we guide our students to use their creativity in community service,positively influencing the lives of others by sharing their time and talents.
