The number of students attending the State High School of Arts in Yangon has been increasing every year since it moved to the former office of the Department of Arts, a school administrator says.
After the school was moved in 2010 to its current location on Kabaraye Road, it has been offering painting, sculpture, piano, xylophone, singing, dancing, and dramatic acting classes together with the basic high school curriculum.
Aye Thein, the department head of the school, said the school allows students to study arts that they are interested in while also learning the compulsory subjects.
Students from all over the region are attending the school, he added.
Compulsory subjects are taught from 9am to 11.30am while specialised subjects are taught from 1pm to 4pm.
Students who have passed seventh grade can join the art school after taking an entrance exam in the subjects they intend to specialise in.
The duration of the course is three years and there are monthly and end-of-the-year exams.
