In this report, we grouped students into three distinct categories, based on how they approached arts learning during high school, which we named spartans, explorers, and deep divers. The approach to arts learning represents not just the students, but also the opportunities and barriers they encountered. We found that these approaches are strongly associated with student characteristics and postsecondary outcomes. Our hope is that understanding the three approaches to arts learning will inform how we strategize for more equitable access to the arts during high school.
