Philosophy:
The arts offer students an important opportunity to engage in hands-on learning through creative problem solving. Students are asked to synthesize information, collaborate, and explore solutions in order to produce an end product. Through the arts, we’re able to foster support and reinforce higher order thinking skills that are critical to the 21st century learner as they prepare for college or career.
