About Clovis West Area Instrumental Music (CWAIM)

CWAIM isn't the best acronym ever, but it never the less represents the entire instrumental music program in the Clovis West Area. The Clovis West Area is made up of one high school (Clovis West), one intermediate school (Kastner), and seven elementary schools. It is our goal to provide the 5th through 12th grade students of the Clovis West Area with an outstanding experience in instrumental music.
