The music program at Scripps Ranch High School has been a source of pride and creativity since the opening of the school in 1993.
At SRHS, you will truly enjoy a rewarding and enjoyable musical experience in one or more of outstanding musical ensembles that include Symphonic Band, String Orchestra, Full Orchestra, Marching Band, Color Guard, Jazz Band, Choir and Percussion Ensemble.
Enrollment in one of our three performing ensembles is the lifeblood of the Instrumental Music Department. Involvement in these ensembles is the best way to promote our main goal which is lifelong enjoyment and performance of music and the arts for all students.
Academics and Music
Academic success is vital for every student. The instrumental department encourages and promotes a rigorous academic schedule to ensure that each student can pursue the college of their choice and follow their dreams.
Music fits right into this picture to form a well-balanced academic schedule. Many SRHS music students have been able to balance the most difficult schedules and still make room for music on a daily basis. Did you know that music students can earn a varsity letter? A Varsity Letter is an important part of the high school experience. Through hard work and effort, you can earn your Varsity Letter in music by earning points.
Recent graduates have been accepted to Yale, UC Berkeley, Princeton, Northwestern, UC San Diego, Penn, Stanford, Manhattan School of Music, Eastman School of Music and Berklee College of Music, just to name a few.
Music and the Community
The music program is very active both at school and around the country. Each February, the band and orchestra perform in the school musical which has received rave reviews over the years. SRHS also is the host for the annual Area Concert featuring all music students in the Scripps Ranch community.
The band and orchestra have also traveled abroad to San Francisco, Hawaii, China, Chicago, Seattle and Vancouver B.C. It’s an opportunity to enjoy new musical and cultural experiences that cannot be taught in the classroom.
The Parent Connection
The SRHS Music Boosters are a volunteer Non-Profit organization designed to help the music students at Scripps Ranch and are the cornerstone that keeps things running smoothly. This support is provided through logistics, fundraising and encouragement. We hope you will consider becoming a member and be involved in their musical growth and progress through their high school years.
