Visit Creswell 

Isaiah T. Creswell Middle Magnet School of the Visual & Performing Arts is a Magnet School and part of the MNPS Optional School Choice program.  This means it requires an optional school application to request enrollment. 

The Optional School Choice Application window is now open! Create a SchoolMint account and apply today.

We work every day to make sure every student is known and supported. We would love to meet your student and see if Creswell fits your family. Call us or fill out the interest form below to learn more and plan a visit.


Contact Creswell for the most current audition process. 

One of the benefits of attending Creswell is that students take 2 arts classes, for the whole school year. When completing the School Choice Application, 2 arts conservatory classes will be selected, by parent and student. Our conservatories include; Band, Choir, Dance, Piano, Theater, Music Appreciation, and Visual Art. The arts conservatory selected in the application is the preferred choice, but we will hold informal auditions once the school year starts to ensure the best placement for all students.
