Principal's Message

 Dear Art and Design community,

I would like to start off this upcoming school year by articulating the importance of trust and collaboration as we grow together. As we  work together, our community will continue a legacy of developing premier, college and career ready student-artists. Art and Design has shown substantial growth in a few short years and is well positioned to sustain that growth. In order to make our work meaningful, we must also find urgency in creating an equitable environment for each other and bettering ourselves through critical thinking and reflection.   

To our soon-to-be graduates of Art and Design, you possess within you the ability to change the world. This may seem hyperbolic but it is not. Now more than ever, our world needs conscientious, intelligent and informed people to lead. Your skills as artists can change minds and influence behavior. A brushstroke is not a line, it is a statement. 


Maximillian Re-Sugiura, I.A. Principal
