The guitar and jazz ensemble programs, like arts education programs in general and music programs in particular, help students succeed academically, and provide them an outlet for creative expression in their academic day. Although the programs have less active performance schedules than other performing arts programs at Santa Fe High, students compete on a local and state level and are frequent winners. Guitar is offered as a class; jazz ensemble is an after-school program.
