Fine Arts - Performing Arts

The Performing Arts Program at Andover High School provides learning opportunities in music and drama emphasizing ensembles and the study of the performing arts where arts skills, critical thinking, and creative problem solving are emphasized on stage and in the classroom.  Central to this creative work is utilizing one’s risk-taking, curiosity, and collaborative abilities.  The Performing Arts Department strives to build student confidence and resiliency that fundamentally transforms students into creative learners supporting 21st Century learning skills.  The curriculum focuses on developing creative sensitivities and technical proficiency, literacy in a variety of mediums and expressions, and multiple opportunities to develop a lifelong relationship with the arts.  The department supports collaborative cross-curricular opportunities and encourages students to communicate and advocate through the fine arts, seeing this as an important life skill that extends into and complements all other disciplines.
