Celebrating 40 Years ooking at old issues of Imprints, the NHS yearbook, you'll see that students have always pursued some unique arts opportunities. In 1998 (Northwood’s 25th Anniversary and the year Lori Major arrived to teach Theatre Arts) you could have seen highlights from Shakespeare’s “Scottish Play,” complete with witches, just in time for Halloween. Or maybe you dropped by the Homecoming Dance to see that student band performing with a young Ari Picker. 

In the 1980s colorguard replaced the Pom Pom girls, and folks who enjoyed The Waltons on TV came out to see the NHS production of The Homecoming.

1978 extracurriculars included Craft Club, Yoga Club, Clogging Club and Mime Troupe! You could have taken the Optics and Photography class, studied typography and sculpture in Visual Arts, created commercials and news broadcasts in the Theatre Production Media class, or traveled with the Concert Chorus via Amtrak to perform at Walt Disney

World. 1978 also marked the completion of Project Entice, the multi-year NEA grant that created the NHS Dance Program. Students studied choreography, jazz and modern dance, and it proved to be so popular local funding was provided to continue to underwrite the program. Today, with two dance instructors, enrollment is in the hundreds. That visionary effort gives Northwood the distinction of being perhaps the oldest, comprehensive, public high school arts education program in North Carolina. For today’s students, the curricula offers beginning to advanced classes in each discipline, auditioned ensembles, honors coursework, extracurricular activities, and Honor Societies. With an emphasis on higher standards and increased mastery, students are exposed to myriad arts career opportunities not only in entertainment and education, but also in commerce, historic preservation, health care, and technology. Faculty offer students the chance to interact and learn from a wide variety of arts professionals via residencies, field trips, and master classes, some even taught by Northwood alumni.

2012–2013 was a celebration built on all that had come before and a year to explore

new possibilities as well. Here are a few of the highlights and achievements of the students and faculty in this remarkable program.

Celebrating 40 Years ooking at old issues of Imprints, the NHS yearbook, you'll see that students have always pursued some unique arts opportunities. In 1998 (Northwood’s 25th Anniversary and the year Lori Major arrived to teach Theatre Arts) you could have seen highlights from Shakespeare’s “Scottish Play,” complete with witches, just in time for Halloween. Or maybe you dropped by the Homecoming Dance to see that student band performing with a young Ari Picker. 

In the 1980s colorguard replaced the Pom Pom girls, and folks who enjoyed The Waltons on TV came out to see the NHS production of The Homecoming.

1978 extracurriculars included Craft Club, Yoga Club, Clogging Club and Mime Troupe! You could have taken the Optics and Photography class, studied typography and sculpture in Visual Arts, created commercials and news broadcasts in the Theatre Production Media class, or traveled with the Concert Chorus via Amtrak to perform at Walt Disney

World. 1978 also marked the completion of Project Entice, the multi-year NEA grant that created the NHS Dance Program. Students studied choreography, jazz and modern dance, and it proved to be so popular local funding was provided to continue to underwrite the program. Today, with two dance instructors, enrollment is in the hundreds. That visionary effort gives Northwood the distinction of being perhaps the oldest, comprehensive, public high school arts education program in North Carolina. For today’s students, the curricula offers beginning to advanced classes in each discipline, auditioned ensembles, honors coursework, extracurricular activities, and Honor Societies. With an emphasis on higher standards and increased mastery, students are exposed to myriad arts career opportunities not only in entertainment and education, but also in commerce, historic preservation, health care, and technology. Faculty offer students the chance to interact and learn from a wide variety of arts professionals via residencies, field trips, and master classes, some even taught by Northwood alumni.

2012–2013 was a celebration built on all that had come before and a year to explore

new possibilities as well. Here are a few of the highlights and achievements of the students and faculty in this remarkable program.
