MISSION

The Arts are essential to the development of our students; therefore, our mission is to educate students by engaging and inspiring them to be life-long learners through active participation, creative expression and cultural awareness in the arts.

We facilitate learning and understanding by using an integrated, sequenced, interdisciplinary, and standards-based curriculum.

VISION

The faculty of the Department of Arts envisions our students as those who are equipped with the skills needed for success.

Students will:

  • Actively participate in the arts at home, in school, at work, and in the community to contribute to the cultural heritage of our global community

  • Be creative thinkers who analyze and understand multiple viewpoints

  • Problem solve, reason effectively, and make decisions

  • Communicate clearly, understand world view, and collaborate effectively

  • Access, manage, and analyze information technology for creative purposes
