Spartanburg District Four values the arts and places special emphasis on its fine arts programs. Woodruff High School has a designated fine arts wing that houses its visual and performing arts classes. The District Administrative Office proudly displays decades of William L. Howell Art Purchase Awards, artwork purchased from students.

The high quality of the visual arts program is recognized across the state as Woodruff High School students consistently compete for top honors.  The performing arts program produces a marching band that consistently rates high in competitions and qualifies to compete in the SC Marching Band Competition. The choral program performs to high ratings each year at the Carowinds Music Festival.

We believe the arts contribute to the academic success of our students and are integral in the development of the whole child. We appreciate the hard work of our fine arts staff and the support our arts programs receive from our families and community.
