Music is one of the biggest parts that make up the community at Summit Public Schools: Rainier. Students play music during breaks and even during classes. Many students and staff love music and visibly show their support toward it. Music brings out students’ creativity, encouraging them to express it to the community. This is what students and staff have to say about how music affects the Rainier community:

Rainier seniors Jowie Panaligan and Ian Torres joined the VIBE club due to their interest in the arts; they explained that the musical arts are important at Rainier.

On the beginning of the year camping trip, Summit Rainier family set up a late night talent show to let students show off their skills for the rest of the community.
