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.
