The Creative & Performing Arts at Markham is currently undergoing a transformation.

Art, Drama and Music both in and outside the classroom are expanding. We believe that vibrant, engaged and creative imagination can only lend to academic well being, personal understanding and social engagement. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to participate in an Arts activity of their choice and with that choice, each child should have the opportunity to excel and become the best in their field.

Performing Arts is celebrated throughout Markham starting in Lower School with our yearly musicals, our Peruvian tradition of Bailes Peruanos and our growing Drama Department.
