These pieces along with the works of our music, dance, and theater departments will be featured in our Upper School Evening of the Arts performance on December 13th at the Play to Learn Performing Arts and Athletic Center on Cushman’s main campus. In addition to the above accolades, Brandon Schock competed for the District 8 Thespian Scholarship at the festival.

Cushman has always prioritized the Arts in its programming.
