School Life

Creative & Performing Arts

Woodlynde Students have traditionally demonstrated great interest and talent in the creative and performing arts. Through four key areas of focus--journalism, music, performing arts, and visual arts--students have the opportunity not only to further their current abilities, but also to expand their interests and talents into new areas.


Woodlynde School boasts an award-winning student newspaper, The Informer. This monthly publication, created entirely by Upper School students, also includes active video production and social media tracks. To learn more about The Informer, visit their website. Another favorite student publication is the Aurora yearbook.

Music & Performing Arts

Students are inspired to challenge their limits, build self-confidence, and unite their community in support of their fellow performers. Each Division at Woodlynde stages a drama, comedy, or musical production during the school year. These productions are supplemented by a variety of other performances throughout the year, including concerts and the Annual Talent Show.

Visual Arts

Woodlynde's Visual Arts program offers a range of media, including printmaking, book arts, photography, drawing, painting, and ceramics. Each Division has a certified art teacher who incorporates history and art appreciation into each lesson. Students who wish to pursue art after graduation may choose to be an art major during their senior year to focus on portfolio presentation.
