Gaining recognition from the National Association of Music Merchants or NAMM Foundation, New Hope-Solebury School District has ranked in the top 476 schools among over 13,500 school districts nationwide as one of the best communities for music education.
  The award comes from “outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students and community leaders who work together to ensure access to music learning for all
students as part of the school curriculum.”
  Other schools in the area such as Pennsbury, Council Rock, and Central Bucks have also won the recognition, but for New Hope, this prize is a first. Our choir department has a concert choir, madrigal choir, and chamber choir. Our orchestra department has an orchestra as well as a select orchestra. Our band department has a concert band and an award-winning jazz band.
  Not only does our school have a great music program, but the entire community does as well. New Hope is known as one of the artsiest towns in the area, surely enough to influence New Hope students. This award is sure to bring attention to everything going on in the music department from students, parents, and the community alike.
