Fine Arts Department

Music, Speech, and Art are important aspects of every student’s education. Students are introduced to music theory, basic instruments, drama, and art at an early age. To prepare our students for college, we offer Music Appreciation and Art Appreciation in high school in addition to several Fine Arts elective classes.

Special events are scheduled throughout the year to give the students the opportunity to perform, using the talents they master in their Fine Arts classes.
