Performing Arts Coordinator's Message

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the Performing Arts department, we warmly welcome you to this school year. We are excited and prepared to offer our students, from preschool to high school, experiences in art that enhance their comprehensive education.

The arts play a crucial role in our students' development at every stage, fostering discipline and providing space for imagination, creativity, and personal expression.

Our academic program adheres to the National Core Arts Standards (NCAS), ensuring competitive and high-quality education while staying true to the primary purpose of the arts: to be a means of exploration, construction, and expression of the self, as well as fostering interpersonal communication and community interaction.

Throughout this school year, we will start with musical initiation in preschool, allowing students to begin forming a bond with music. In elementary school, our rotating arts program offers students the opportunity to explore various disciplines: Visual Arts, Drama, Dance, and Musical Instruments. In middle school, the rotation continues with explorations in Percussion, Vocal Music, Visual Arts, and Musical Ensemble. In high school, 9th graders experience all six options mentioned before and focus on a chosen or assigned discipline during the school year, while students in grades 10 through 12 can choose elective arts courses to further their exploration or specialization.

We also offer extracurricular activities to reinforce and develop our students' artistic interests, culminating in our annual show, resulting in their continuous growth and exposure to the arts, showcasing their talents. Meanwhile they have a learning and growing experience from being part of a multidisciplinary artistic ensemble. Quite a challenge but a truly memorable experience.

Engaging in artistic disciplines broadens learning opportunities, stimulates specific areas of the brain that enhance cognitive abilities, and promotes a positive balance in mental and emotional well-being. It provides invaluable moments of teamwork, recognition, and strengthens bonds and self-esteem among our students. We reaffirm our commitment to this wonderful and valuable work.

Best Regards,

Arq. Carolina Bringas Pernas
Performing Arts Coordinator
