Educating the whole child

We are committed to the education of the whole child and as a component of that education believe that:

  • every student should have a basic knowledge, skills and appreciation of the fine arts.
  • a quality arts education program will enable students to develop self-esteem, self-discipline, self motivation, and cooperation necessary for success in life.
