North Port High School Recognized as a Florida Arts Model School

The Florae Alliance for Arts Education recently recognized North Port High School as a Florida Arts Model School, with an additional Florida Arts Achieve School designation. North Port High School was one of only three schools in the state to receive this honor.

The Florida Arts Model Schools (FAMS) program recognizes schools that offer exemplary programs in any of the four arts disciplines – Dance, Music, Theatre, and Visual arts. Schools can apply for FAMS designation in one or more arts disciplines. In addition, the designation of Florida Arts Achieve School is given to secondary schools receiving a FAMS designation in all four arts areas, and elementary schools receiving a FAMS designation in at least three out of the four arts areas.

Please join us in congratulating North Port High School on this tremendous achievement!
