VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS

Enthusiasm for fine arts permeates every corner of our school. At all grade levels, our program emphasizes theory, appreciation, creativity, and skill. Often integrated with academic studies, the visual and performing arts are both a tool and a focus of learning. Christmas concerts, a poetry contest for kindergarten through grade two in the spring, Shakespeare Club, and the annual Night of the Arts in May are opportunities for our students to perform and display their creations.
