Project Profile: Exemplary Schooling at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts

The Duke Ellington School of the Arts is a world class institution that takes advantage of our Omniffusor FRG to create an ideal learning environment.

High school is an environment that fosters the intellectual and creative spirit of young adults, and the Duke Ellington School of the Arts is a world class example of this kind of institution. Since 1974 the school, located in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC, has been ensuring that students are well equipped to pursue a career in the arts, incorporating everything from dance, music, the visual arts and more. The Duke Ellington School of the Arts is such an important Washington D.C. educational institution and RPG Acoustical is proud to have been a part of the project.

The School

The Duke Ellington School is considered one of Washington D.C.’s top public schools, wherein students are expected to participate in rigorous coursework that is far different from your typical high school. With a 98% on-time graduation rate and ever-increasing rates of college acceptance, it’s clear that the Duke Ellington School of Art is an establishment driven by helping students flourish to meet their full potential. Such a facility as this demands state of the art facilities and performance spaces as well, requiring detailed attention paid to acoustical design. Employing the expert advice of acoustician Polysonics, the architects at Cox Craae + Spack have achieved a masterful work in which students can hone their artistic craft.

Omniffusor FRG

(we need to mention the architect – Cox Graae Spack and the acoustician – Polysonics.) The Duke Ellington School of the Arts takes advantage of RPG’s Omniffusor FRG, a product that has been utilized in facilities around the world since 1990. The surface of the unit provides a diffuse, uniform sound field in the mid and high frequencies while its hard, sturdy construction limits the amount of sound energy that is absorbed. This is one of the most effective solutions when trying to control room reflections while still retaining natural ambiance. With the school’s focus on performing arts being of highest importance, it only makes sense for them to have suitable spaces for performance—and that has been achieved with the help of the Omniffusor FRG.
