Curiosity Meets Creativity

At Hammond, we believe in the power of the arts to liberate minds and spirits to create without limit. We give every student opportunities to discover what they’re capable of, whether that be in music, dance, theatre, or visual arts. Our students write plays, design costumes, produce their own music, study sound design, musical theatre, dance, and everything in between.
