Inspiring Creativity

The fine arts are considered an integral part of the curriculum, and they serve as a vehicle for self-expression and the development of individual interests and talents. The faculty strives to provide the opportunity for our students to see, think, wonder, and find their voice through the development of individual interests and talents.

Students in Preschool through Eighth Grade have classes in art and music as part of their regular curriculum; Fourth and Eighth Grade classes perform major musical productions each school year. Fifth Graders are introduced to chimes, and Middle Schoolers are introduced to handbells. In Fifth and Sixth Grades, students rotate through quarter classes in art, drama and music. In Seventh and Eighth Grades, students choose from a large variety of fine arts electives including ceramics, watercolor, painting, printmaking, drama, handbells, voice, stained glass, computer graphics, photography, and choir.
