Arts

In the Basic School model, the arts are revered as a universal language, and to quote Dr. Boyer, “perhaps the most evocative form of human expression.  As a result, arts are woven throughout our entire curriculum, giving our students the opportunity to explore and respond to content through aesthetic experiences. We focus on art history, art appreciation, and art making. In addition, students in every grade level create and participate in various classroom performances, incorporating dialogue, song and movement. These extensive age-appropriate experiences with dramatic presentations help build a strong respect for the arts and enrich our students' lives.
