Here is another example of NB hitting above its weight. Fredericton High (FHS) and Moncton High(MHS) have been selected to be among only 7 high schools in Canada to attend the International Performing Arts festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is one of the largest such festivals in the world.
I think it is so amazing that we have 2 of 7 schools chosen from Canada coming from tiny NB. However, if you have ever attended a High School production you really wouldn't be surprised at all. These kids work very hard and do a tremendous job from sets, to music, to acting. Riverview High (RHS) did "The Sound of Music" this spring and it was sensational.
So, if you have children in performing arts, or you like live theatre, ballet or any of the arts, consider living in Metro Moncton. Not only are we in the top 7 most intelligent communities in the world, we have the arts side covered too. Both sides of your brain can get a work out here in NB!!!
