ABOUT ENCORE: Encore is a free public school open to ALL students grades 7-12 and offers classes for young artists beginning to advanced. Encore is the PERFECT school for students who need a balance of creativity AND education to succeed. Encore opens doors for young singers, dancers, musicians, artists, actors, and technical artists.
In 2006, a small team of arts and academic enthusiasts started on a mission to create a place where students would be able to pursue interests in a variety of arts programs while obtaining a high quality academic education. The mission of this school was to create a free public program that would provide a creative, challenging, and nurturing environment that offers secondary students innovative preparation for a university education and pursuit of the arts.
In 2008, with a very small amount of startup capital from federal grants, Encore Jr./Sr. High School for the performing & visual arts opened in Hesperia, California with 580 students under the direction of the nonprofit corporation, Encore Education Corporation.
In 2013, Encore Jr./Sr. High School has grown to 1,200 students. The school is a bronze medal school (as reported by US News) boasting the highest high school ranking by the California Department of Education in the Hesperia Unified School District with an API of 793. Over a million dollars in college scholarships have been awarded to graduates at Encore with a 98% graduation rate and a 100% high school exit exam pass rate in 2013. Encore services students from 17 cities in and around the high desert.
