Principal's Message

Principal Kimberly Beckler

Howard Middle School Academy of Arts is a visual and performing arts magnet, located in the heart of downtown Orlando.   Our program is designed for students who are seeking a challenging academic focus, and who have a demonstrated interest or ability in the arts.   In addition to a strong core curriculum, we offer beginning to advanced coursework in band, orchestra/strings, chorus, guitar, dance, theater, musical theater, visual arts, and digital art.

We are currently a lottery based system, with all students applying through the Orange County Schools School Choice office.    At this time, we are at capacity for the 2020-2021 school year, and enrollment is now complete for students who were admitted into the first and second lotteries held through the Office of School Choice.

Thank you to all of our families, both current and incoming, for your continued partnership in making Howard Middle School Academy of Arts the very best place for students to grow and learn, both academically, and in the arts!
