Performing Arts Department recognized for performing at superior level.
Oakton High School’s Performing Arts Department is the recipient of a Virginia Music Educators Association Blue Ribbon School Award for 2011-2012. This award is also known as "the Performing Arts Department’s Standardized Test" according to Oakton’s Orchestra teacher Debra Myers. Back in February a panel of judges at the District Festival assessed the performance of Oakton’s band, chorus and orchestra. On May 11, Oakton was honored with a Blue Ribbon Award.
