The Waterbury Arts Magnet School (WAMS) provides an integrated learning environment that offers both high level academics and a comprehensive arts program. In this environment, all students reach their artistic and academic potential. This curriculum also provides a broad range of Advanced Placement courses and professional internship opportunities. We also provide extensive support and direction in the selection of a conservatory, fine arts institution, college or university.
We believe that an education rich in the arts provides students with a way of perceiving the world and solving problems that extend far beyond production and performance. A foundation built on creative expression enables students to perceive, interpret, invent and create, whether they choose to pursue additional educaton in the arts, humanities or sciences. These are the building blocks from which goals can be realized and dreams come true.
