Students with high participation in the arts outperform peers with low arts participation on measures of academic and civic outcomes.
High arts participation is positively connected with "school grades, test scores, honors society membership, high school graduation, college enrollment and achievement, volunteering, and engagement in school or local politics," as well as with higher rates of participation in extracurricular activities in high school and college. This relationship is particularly robust for students from low socioeconomic status backgrounds (Caterall, 2012).
