Incline High School is now a Chapter of the NfMAE 
National Music Honor Society!
The power of music education extends into brain development and academic achievement.  Improved cognition, critical thinking, decision-making and reading skills, and higher grade point averages are just a few benefits of music education in schools. 



Congratulations on making it to the end of another school year! 


Our Elementary School finished out their year with highly successful 5th grade performances and a Kindergarten Celebration performance. Our Middle School had the biggest, best June reception & concert to date, and the high school held its very first annual Tri-M Music Honor Society induction during their wonderful spring concert & reception; with IHS music finishing out its year with a rockin’ performance at the IES Strawberry Festival & 1st Annual Color-Run and performing for the 2017 IHS Graduation Ceremony.


Music at our three public schools continues to thrive, and our high school music program is getting a new line-up of added classes and opportunities as well as looking forward to the much-anticipated theater renovation and seat replacement that should begin by next summer if all goes as planned!
