Music, Theater and arts classes are a highlight at Red River High School. These teachers create a strong program and an inclusive environment. This is a top notch school and district for music, theater and arts. Teachers deeply care about students and support their growth and development. There are strong summer arts programs offered throughout the summer (SPA) as well as multiple choir, theater and performance opportunities during the school year. Both high schools in the district produce multiple plays and musicals throughout the year.

I attended Grand Forks Public Schools K-12 and had a very positive experience! The facilities are good, and the teachers are overwhelmingly caring and smart.
I grew up attending K-12 in GFPS and had nothing but wonderful experiences! It is a great place to grow through childhood, teachers and staff were amazing & there was a club or sport for everything you could want to participate in.
