It is the mission of the Shasta High Instrumental Program, in partnership with the band and orchestra director and school administration, to provide our students an opportunity to receive the best instrumental music education possible. We intend to accomplish this objective by providing the director/students with support and needs through fundraising, special events, and volunteer work. We promote a spirit of fellowship and goodwill and encourage our children to be the best ambassadors possible for Shasta High School.

What is STEAM??

"STEAM is a way to take the benefits of STEM and complete the package by integrating these principles in and through the arts. STEAM takes STEM to the next level: it allows students to connect their learning in these critical areas together with arts practices, elements, design principles, and standards to provide the whole pallet of learning at their disposal. STEAM removes limitations and replaces them with wonder, critique, inquiry, and innovation. "
