Exploring the Arts at Nolensville High School

  • Nolensville High School provides each student with the opportunity to fully immerse themselves into the arts. Along the way, passion and talents are unveiled as students are free to express themselves as individuals. The Fine Arts department offers something of interest for everyone. Courses in these programs of study satisfy the Fine Arts credit. 

    Band and Orchestra

    In addition to a full range of classes in choral and orchestral music, percussion, and strings, NHS is proud of its after-school programs in marching band and drum line.

    Theatre Arts

    Nolensville High School's Theatre Program emphasizes genuine storytelling and encourages student development in all aspects of theatre related training. Emphasis in our program is on ensemble theatre, which promotes the understanding that no one participant is more important than another in telling a beautiful story together through theatre. Students take on leadership roles in every aspect of our productions from costumes and makeup to lighting and sound to management areas. Students have the opportunity to study all four years in the theatre pathway with Theatre I - IV and Technical Theatre classes, as well as being involved in the national honor society for theatre, the International Thespian Society, once they have achieved over 100 hours in theatre production credits.

    Visual Arts

    The Nolensville High Visual Arts courses attract incredibly talented artists every year. Students may choose to pursue a sequential program in Fine Arts as their focus area for graduation.  This path may culminate with AP Art and Design, where students prepare a portfolio of work to possibly earn college credit.  Courses include Visual Arts I, II and III as well as AP Art and Design.
