Our school is one of the first and finest creative arts schools in Saint Paul. We believe the arts are essential to academic
success and our students’ growth. Every student experiences the arts through music, dance and drama integrated into
core subjects like reading, writing, math and even science. Our teachers love what they do and many are practicing artists
themselves. Working with our community partners, students can participate in artist residencies, city-wide performances and
visits to the Ordway Center, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Minneapolis Institute of Arts and Children’s Theatre Company.
After-school and recreational opportunities are available in our building and just a short walk away at McDonough Recreation
Center. We welcome everyone at Mississippi Creative Arts and we are proud of our strong arts focus and supportive families
and community.
