Choir is an elective class open to any student. Choir meets one period during the school day. Women's Ensemble is a female group and Symphonic Choir is a mixed group. Both choirs are comprised of 7th and 8th grade students. Both choirs give four evening concerts per year and will participate in the OMEA competition in May. School evaluation is in the form of letter grades and is based on participation and effort in rehearsals and attendance at concerts and contest.

Spark of Class is a show choir comprised of singers/dancers, instrumentalists, and crew members who perform a wide variety of popular music in concert, community, festival and competition settings. This is an auditioned group. Members are selected for their vocal ability, dance ability/potential, poise, citizenship, and attitude.
