Unifying Our Community, Beautifying Our World
Fine arts courses enrich a traditional college preparatory education by broadening perspectives and developing 21st century skills: collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking. Classes focus on methods and techniques, establishing the background necessary for individual expression. The teaching of the arts is discipline-based, stressing history, appreciation, criticism, and creative projects.
All students participate in fine art classes taught by teachers who specialize in those areas. Students can exercise and strengthen their talents through taking music education and drama from specialized instructors, trying their hands at drawing, painting, sculpture and dance, and performing in the jazz band, pep band, and orchestra. Our students are encouraged to try new arts opportunities, follow their passions, and strengthen their talents. Our community as a whole is brought together by the belief that the arts enrich a student's education in an unparalleled way.
