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 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. 

Students attend an extended school day to fit in all required academics, while providing daily intensive study in their chosen discipline. Students also have access to all clubs and sports teams through Tolman High School, so they may receive a well-rounded high school education.

The JMW Arts High School is free to all Pawtucket residents, while out-of-district students can attend by paying tuition. All prospective students must be in good academic standing, as well as audition before a panel and/or submit a portfolio of work to be considered for admission. Students with or without formal training are encouraged to apply – our admissions panels are trained to spot raw talent in enthusiastic, interested candidates.

MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR

Ricardo Pimentel  

Hello Everyone,

Another exciting week at JMW.  On Monday night, the Friends of JMW PTO group led a successful fundraiser at USA Skates.  Special thanks to Melodye Broadley and Stephanie Baxter for their assistance.  Also this week, several of our students participated in the Write Rhode Island Workshop.  A big shout out goes out to Ms. Murphy and Mrs. Alexander for organizing this event.

The highlight of our week was the news that our Senior, Iris Haik, being accepted on a full, 4 Year Scholarship to Stanford University in California.  We are so proud of her accomplishments and laud her success!  Also, special thanks to Mr. Beauregard and the music students who participated at the Paw Sox Enchanted Village at McCoy Stadium on Saturday as well as at the Winter Wonderland event at Slater Park.   I am beyond proud of our students' accolades.  

Coming up this week, we have Picture Retake day on Tuesday, December 6th for any student who did not have the opportunity to get their picture taken at October.  School ID's will be given out this week with a lanyard.  I am asking that all students wear their ID's on a daily basis.  On Saturday, December 10th, our music students will be performing at the Rhode Island Society Holiday Celebration from 2:00-5:00pm.

Please note that on Thursday, December 8th, there will be no school for students as it is a Professional Development Day for teachers.  There will be school on December 15, 2016.

Until Next Week,
Ricardo Pimentel, JMW Director

OUR MISSION

To provide an intensive, high-quality, conservatory-style high school in and through the arts.
