The more we learn from research about the science of learning, the more we value the arts. As an expression of our imagination, as an outlet for our creativity, as an opportunity to perfect a skill or a performance, the arts represent an integral part of a young person’s growth and education. Through music, drama, art and dance, students appreciate the connections that arts have forged across communities and across human experiences.

  • "LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE" and eat dessert!

    What happens when you bring together some of the greatest comedic scenes ever penned by some of the 20th century's legendary comedy playwrights? You end up with this year's Winter Play, "Live, Laugh, Love." This play consists of 10 scenes performed by more than 20 High School students, many with multiple roles and differing parts, depending on which night you attend. Valentine's Day may be over for another year, but the loving and especially the laughing will live Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in Summer's Auditorium. You won't want to miss it! Adults $10; Students $5. Both evenings feature a special dessert.

The Fine Arts faculty are dedicated to expanding each student's creative talents. The faculty each bring their own expertise into the classroom because they are all practicing musicians, artists and actors outside the classroom. 

Arts are built into the curriculum from Early Childhood through High School. Students have the opportunity to experience drama, choir, musical instruments, speech, chess, photography, computer art, computer musical composition, orchestra, band, dance and much more during the school day.

Theater productions, strings and band performances, choral concerts, ISSMA competitions, chess tournaments and speech meets are just a few of the extracurricular activities available for students who want to spend even more time in the area of the arts.

Goals include making sure students have experiences in the arts that affect awareness at various levels of abilities and interests, develop individual artistic talents, maintain and develop artistic abilities, study history of the arts, have an opportunity to experience technololgy as a tool in enhancing creative expression, develop aesthetic awareness and critical analysis skills, achieve physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth through a balance of classroom experiences and participation in performances or exhibitions, and to develop an appreciation of the arts as an enriching dimension to life experiences.
