The Arts

Arts education is essential to the complete education for the whole child.

Finding the artist within every child.

I like that I can be a part of the band and still play sports. I am learning to play the trombone, and Mr. McAlister makes it really fun. He plays the instruments with us, so we really feel like a band. Also, I am excited about being part of the pep band this year. - Student

Whether setting the stage, striking a chord, creating a masterpiece, or simply exploring individual talents and interests, exposure to the arts develops important life skills necessary for students to succeed in academic areas and everyday life experiences. By providing our students with multiple creative outlets, we seek to nurture talents, build confidence, and help students discover passions.

Through the teaching of the professional elements in the classroom and on the stage, each student gains a sense of pride in his or her own achievement, leading to self-discovery and increased self-esteem. We challenge each student to set high goals, reach beyond perceived limits, and stretch his or her creative thinking ability. The arts are a necessary component in the overall development of a well-rounded student.
