Performing Arts as the Core

An Arts-Based Curriculum

The arts are one of humankind's most essential forms of communication. Traditionally, arts have been secondary to academic curriculum; our school creates a course of study that centers around the performing arts.  Our academic core courses [English, History, Mathematics and the Sciences] are driven by the performing arts.  We believe that the arts:

  • ENHANCE students' self-concepts, communication skills and performance in academic disciplines
  • IMPROVE attitudes towards and perceptions of other cultures
  • RAISE scores on Standardized Assessments

We offer rigorous classes in theatre, dance and technical theatre; provide opportunities for students to be involved in our season of dramatic performances; and create opportunities for our students to observe and work with professionals in the performing arts community.
