<p>The Duke Ellington School of the Arts is a Washington, DC, public high school that offers a dual degree program: a full college prep curriculum and pre-professional arts training. Students, who come from every ward in DC, graduate with two degrees: a DC Public School (DCPS) diploma and an Ellington Arts diploma. </p>
<p>School administrators describe the school as a home for students with raw talent and a passion for the arts. Students are "a bit quirky" and find a welcoming and supportive environment at Ellington, according to school officials.  </p> <p>Students participate in extended school days from 8:30am to 5pm to meet both the DCPS academic requirements and then to tackle three hours of arts major training. Arts majors available are: Dance, Literary Media and Communications, Museum Studies, Instrumental or Vocal Music, Theater, Technical Design and Production, and Visual Arts.</p> <p>First Lady Michelle Obama visited the school in the summer of 2010 and students have performed at the White House on multiple occasions.</p>
