For the 7th year in a row, Wilmington City School District has been honored with the Best Communities for Music Education designation from The NAMM Foundation for its outstanding commitment to music education. The Best Communities for Music Education designation, now in its 25th year, is awarded to districts that demonstrate outstanding achievement for providing music access and education to all students. To qualify for the Best Communities designation, WCS answered detailed questions about funding, graduation requirements, music class participation, instruction time, facilities, support for the music program and community music-making programs. Responses were verified by school officials and reviewed by The Music Research Institute at the University of Kansas.

“We are honored to be recognized with this designation for the 7th year in a row.  This is a testament to the many people who make Music an integral part of education at Wilmington City Schools.” - Matt Spradlin, Director of Bands, WHS. At WCS, students from Kindergarten through 12th grade have access to music education. Instrumental Music (Band) and Choir are offered to students starting in the 6th Grade. At Wilmington High School, students are offered courses in Music (Band, Choir, and general music courses).

We are proud of our rich history of excellence in our Fine and Performing Arts programs at WCS.
