ABOUT US
  The Jacqueline M. Walsh School for the Performing and Visual Arts (JMW Arts High School) is a comprehensive, college-preparatory high school with a focus on the arts. 

We are recognized by U.S. News & World Report as Bronze Medal Schools among the Best High Schools in the Nation.  In Rhode Island, we rank 14 out of 56 High Schools.

We are committed to preparing our students to go on to top colleges in the nation, while concentrating their studies in a chosen arts discipline: visual arts, dance, music or theater. 
 

We are also a tuition free school for All Rhode Island Residents who currently do not have a certified CTE Program in their district.  Out of state residents must pay tuition.

MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR

Ricardo Pimentel  

I hope everyone has enjoyed the winter weather lately.  Even though we had three snow days, it is important that everyone was safe and warm.  This week at JMW, our Theater students have been preparing for their Theater Showcase.  The performance was supposed to be on Wednesday, February 15th, however, due to the weather, the show has been postponed to Tuesday, February 28th.  I hope everyone will have the opportunity to come out and support our Theater students.

Also this week, the Friends of JMW had a carnation sale.  Students were able to purchase a carnation and telegram that was delivered during Valentine's Day.  It was a huge success!  As always, special thanks to our PTO.

By now, all of our parents should have received an email to compete the SurveyWorks survey.  It is important that we have 100% participation from all stakeholders.  Please contact the school at 1-401-729-6525 if you have any questions regarding this survey.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation. 

Next week there will be no school for Winter Break.  When we return on February 27th, I will be taking sign ups for Driver's Ed Classes that will be offered to 20 JMW students (at not cost) at the Youth Center during April Vacation.  Students will have to register with the Youth Center and have the Driver's Ed Program explained to them.  Once I have the 20 students signed up, someone from the Youth Center will come to JMW to register students.  

The Youth Center also has a few opportunities for paid internship hours for 3 Seniors.  If students receive free or reduced lunch, they will qualify.  Any interested Senior should see Mr. Pimentel after break.

On March 1st, the Friends of JMW PTO will have kicking off our School Wide MixedBag Design Fundraiser. This is yet another opportunity to raise funds for student activities.  I hope everyone will participate.
 

Also note that on Thursday, March 9th from 6:00 to 7:30pm, JMW will be hosting a Showcase Open House for Prospective New Students.  We hope new and current students and their families will join us for this event.

I hope everyone has a safe and restful break!  

 

Until Next Week,
Ricardo Pimentel, JMW Director
