 Creative and Performing Arts


​​​​​​​​​RPS 205 offers a comprehensive K-12 grade arts education that is based on the National Standards for the Arts. For those students in grades 6-12 needing more in-depth arts experiences, R​PS 205 provides the Creative and Performing Arts Program (CAPA). The CAPA program is offered at two sites, one for middle school students and the second for high school students. CAPA gives each student a unique real-life experience in one or more of the fine arts disciplines: Dance, Instrumental Music, Theatre-Tech and Media Arts, Vocal Music and Visual Arts. ​Acceptance into the program is by audition.​​ West CAPA Dance
