At the middle and high school levels, students have a wide variety of course offerings, ranging from beginning level to advanced. Beginning level courses are offered in both middle and high school. They offer opportunities to explore new interests, and are open to students without prerequisites. It is not too late to try something new. Advanced courses are rigorous, and offer opportunities to develop pre-collegiate and pre-professional skills.
At the middle school level, students choose from band, chorus, orchestra, theatre, visual arts, and sculpture. At the high school level, these courses are offered in addition to courses in dance, ceramics, theatre tech, graphic design, music theory, art history, and filmmaking.
Honors and Advanced Placement Courses
Because courses at the high school level are proficiency based, all courses coded Proficient (P) or Advanced (A), are honors courses, and students will receive honors credit. Honors courses are available in all arts subject areas. Advanced Placement (AP) courses are available for AP Music Theory, AP Art History, and AP Art and Design. AP courses are rigorous, and offer students an opportunity to complete college-level work in high school. AP exams or portfolio are required.
