Performing Arts

The annual Middle School drama production is a highlight of each school year. Students are welcome to participate in performing arts, also referred to as drama. This is an activity that meets each afternoon for several weeks leading up to a theatrical production. Students take part in acting exercises, practice their lines and creating sets. The productions are fun and complex.

Visual Arts

Students have the opportunity to express, create and develop skills using a variety of painting, drawing and sculptural media. They undertake individual and group projects in class that allow them to explore theory and perspective, basic techniques of application and design, as well as art history. The program is designed to accommodate both beginner and more accomplished students.

Music

Middle School students study music history, theory and learn to read music. They listen to and learn to recognize music from many of the world's different cultures and to appreciate the differences in style and composition. Students explore the lives and music of various period composers to develop writing and listening skills. They also study the instruments of the orchestra: how they are made, what they sound like and the roles they play in orchestral performance.

Students may also take private lessons in instrument and voice, as well as participate in chorus and band or the string ensemble.
