Ellsworth High School has been my educational home for the last 29 years! It has been such a privilege to mentor hundreds of students over the years and watch the Visual/Performing Arts program grow and the Visual/Performing Arts Academy become a reality. When I began teaching at Ellsworth so many years ago, we performed in a cafetorium and offered a handful of electives. Now we are able to offer over 35 electives spanning everything from Digital Art to Guitar Rock History to Dramatic Literature and Criticism. We have one of the finest facilities in the state featuring three expansive art studios, a state of the art theatre and numerous rehearsal rooms with a beautiful music room overlooking the football field.
