The art facilities in the Middle School are second to none, with multiple dedicated music rooms, an impressive 350 seat 剧院, 和 a recently renovated art room 和 pottery studio. Art classes 通过out the 三个 years of middle school are structured to give exposure to music, 剧院, 和 visual arts, while also allowing students to develop interests 和 skills they may already have.
Students in Grades 6 和 7 follow a rotation of art classes that includes Strings, 剧院, 和 Visual 艺术. In the final quarter of 7th grade, students embark on a collaborative project combining the skills gained in these performing 和 visual arts classes.
In 8年级, the focus is split between a more in-depth dive into Visual 艺术 和 on music creation 和 appreciation in General Music. Both art classes focus on the connections to our journey to Costa Rica, bringing the art they learn alive during our eight day adventure. 看到 Middle School academic pages
