    The Bayonne Public School System is a great place for the performing and visual arts. 
    With theater, art, and music we place an emphasis on the importance of the fine arts in our society.


    BHS Drama has been a part of the Bayonne Public Schools landscape for more than 40 years, typically producing four shows per season: three main stage shows, a faculty student and alumni production, and a performing arts summer camp musical. BHS Drama also offers a variety of academic classes for all grade-levels and is open to any student who would like to participate in our productions. BHS Drama is a family, and as such, we welcome everyone with open arms.  


    Bayonne Public Schools Art Department values Visual Art as a vital part of our contemporary society. We support the exploration of media while teaching traditional techniques and progressive creative thinking. We pride ourselves on the quality and consistency of the work produced by our talented student body.  We strive to nurture creative expression and instill an appreciation of all the arts. With over 15 offerings including AP Studio Art class, the Art Department at Bayonne High School is the place to learn skills and express oneself! 


    The Bayonne Public Schools Music Department focuses on student achievement in music. Our goal is to help students understand music concepts and performance skills so they can succeed in their schools and throughout the state in activities such as all state ensembles and state music festivals. The department is also committed to giving college bound music students the skills they need to succeed post high school. This is accomplished by having high quality music ensembles, (both large and chamber groups) musicals, cabaret performances and an AP Music Theory Course. Finally, the music department serves the non-traditional music students as well, by giving them opportunities to be involved in courses such music technology, beginning music theory, keyboarding, Glee Club, as well as numerous after school activities.
