Through a progressive curriculum, students learn basic principles of music while developing their own musical creativity. Students attend weekly or biweekly and their learning culminates in two annual concerts. The elementary music curriculum sets the groundwork for our award-winning Middle & High School music programs.
Students explore art through the use of a variety of mediums while learning foundational elements, principles and techniques. Students learn art forms from different eras and are trained in a variety of techniques. Classrooms and hallways proudly display our students' creative work. Kindergarten through 5th graders enjoy art class once a week from a specialty art teacher.
Students get up & get moving in their gym classes twice a week. Our gym teacher gives students the opportunity to engage in different athletic units where they get a chance to learn the rules and participate in many games. They practice different skills, and learn through play.
