Founded in 1996, Special Music School at Kaufman Music Center (M859) is a citywide K-12 public school for musically gifted students. The school combines intensive instrumental study with a rigorous academic program, providing a strong foundation for a lifetime of music without compromising academic studies.
The mission of the Special Music School PTA is to create a warm and welcoming community for all students and families while providing essential support for the school and its faculty. We accomplish these goals through a roster of engaging events, monthly meetings, and fundraising initiatives. All parents and guardians of SMS students and all SMS teachers are automatically members of the PTA. WELCOME!!
