The core of Fillmore's philosophy is a belief that all children should receive a skill-based, quality arts education. Fillmore serves over 1,600 DCPS students.

For our new parents here are a few key points:

  • Students from participating schools travel by DCPS buses to the Fillmore site on “their day” and gain experience with a wide variety of visual and performing arts courses.
  • Participating school teachers accompany students on the bus to Fillmore, and then have a private space to use for their planning.
  • Second graders and below take an hour of visual arts and an hour of music, dance, or drama each week at Fillmore. Also, second graders have a hands-on experience with the violin or recorder.
  • Students in grades 3 and up choose from electives like strings, winds, percussion, dance, drama, musical theater, digital art, general art and design, painting, ceramics, and sculpture.

  • Fillmore teachers will visit classrooms during the first week of school to assist students in their class choices.
  • At the start of the year you and your child should discuss which classes he/she may want to take.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Fillmore!
