The Bering Strait School District Arts Mission

The Bering Strait School District recognizes the importance of the arts in education. Purposeful, intentional teaching and learning of the arts improves the quality, scope and relevance of education. It fosters positive relationships among students and teachers while acknowledging and utilizing multiple intelligences and learning styles of students. Artful teaching nurtures the creativity, imagination, talents and personal expression of individuals.

Students who create, perform and actively participate in cultural activities and the arts develop critical 21st century skills, along with an appreciation for a sense of beauty and meaning in life. Every student in the Bering Strait School District should have engaging opportunities to learn, explore, and express themselves through the arts to enhance their understanding of the world.
