Student Life


Arts take center stage at RE

Greater Miami is a vibrant international hub for both visual and performing arts. And Ransom Everglades is part of it.

From sixth grade through graduation, our students take part in an integrated program of coursework and co-curricular activities that stretches and develops their full range of skills and talents.

Whether playing with RE's acclaimed jazz combo, symphonic band or strings ensemble; taking part in theatrical performances, creating architectural models, or preparing college-level studio art portfolios, our students develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to make their mark in the arts and appreciate the beauty and wonder around them.

“Our courses are designed to fit the student that has never performed before or students that have had a lot of experience either in previous schools or community organizations. They’re allowed to explore at a level that is comfortable for them.”

Performing Arts

The performing arts program at Ransom Everglades inspires students at all levels to discover their own artistic voices while developing their talents and advancing their skills. As they work with a faculty of innovative educators with professional artistic backgrounds, middle school students build a solid foundation before transitioning to more advanced learning. By the end of their journey at Ransom Everglades, students will not only have grown as individual artists; they also will have honed their appreciation for the role that the performing arts play in society at large.


Visual Arts

Art education at RE follows a continuum of rotation and elective courses from the sixth through the 12th grades. In the middle school, students build a foundation of aesthetic understanding and appreciation as they receive a broad exposure to the arts.

In the upper school, students are encouraged to explore in greater depth specific arts including architecture, ceramics, photography, sculpture, studio art and yearbook. At the end of their years at RE, students have grown as artists and developed the ability to critically evaluate others' work.

Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
