Fine Arts and/or Performing and Visual Arts
Students receive specialized instruction in a variety of areas, including strings, band, piano, art, theater, dance, creative writing, and gymnastics. Young artists work together to prepare performances and create exhibitions that display their appreciation of the arts, develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and enhance self-esteem. Excellence in the arts is a natural, integrated extension of the academic program. The offerings at each individual school may vary.
