Orchestra Magnet Program

Orchestra Magnet Program Banner

CNUSD is excited to announce the creation of the Orchestra Magnet Program for our secondary students.  The CNUSD Orchestra Program will begin in 7th grade at El Cerrito Middle School and continue through the 12th grade at Santiago High School. By creating a magnet program at these two sites, orchestra students will benefit by being enrolled in courses containing only strings players which will allow more focused instruction specific to the needs of these musicians.
