McKinney ISD Fine Arts

McKinney ISD Fine Arts The visual and performing arts have always been a priority in McKinney ISD.

When other districts were cutting theatre, art, and music programs, McKinney ISD was finding ways to contribute more funds to these valuable areas of education. Award-winning marching bands, state-recognized choir programs, a rapidly growing orchestra program, concert performances, and visual arts programs are just a few reasons parents and teachers are attracted to the Fine Arts programs in McKinney ISD.

Words are not adequate to express the pride that MHS and MBHS bands brought to McKinney at the UIL Area Contest yesterday. Both bands played exquisitely and gave performances that will not be soon forgotten. Both bands also qualified for finals—a first since 2016. Thank you, bands, for memorable shows and an incredible season. We are so proud of how you represent McKinneyISD.
