Hoggetowne Middle School of the Performing Arts is dedicated to educating students through high standards in academics as well as performing arts programs including capoeira, rock band, drama and dance. Hoggetowne has been educating sixth, seventh and eighth grade students in a small classroom setting each year since it first opened its doors in 2003.
We believe in the value of our programs in producing creative leaders that are confident and articulate communicators. We serve a high concentration of students that qualify for the federal “free and reduced lunch program” as a result of their low economic status. We also serve a high concentration of students with disabilities.
Providing these programs and opportunities to our community’s youth is an important endeavor, and one that most schools cannot offer due to limited funding and budget cuts.
