Art is a favorite pursuit and curriculum on campus, and your daughter will love the unique opportunities to express herself and hone her artistic ambitions.

Higher Order Thinking Skills Utilized For Creative Expression

"All classrooms visited had well managed classrooms. Students knew what the expectations were, and the teacher and students seemed to work in tandem to create a rich learning environment. Teachers were extremely supportive of students' needs, and they worked cooperatively with the students. Active learning environments existed in all classrooms. Higher order thinking skills are promoted within the classrooms and teachers actively provided the needed support for each of the students. Class sizes are small, which naturally lead to flexibility and active learning in each classroom. Student interviews also support that the teachers provide a supportive learning environment with high expectations. A culture of enthusiastic learning exists at the school."

Art classes are diverse. We have a very “hands on” ceramics workshop where students throw clay and fire them in our kiln. Students may also have the opportunity to study drawing and painting in different mediums.
And, with the technology advances available now, we also have an active digital arts program.

Aside from the academic and recreational benefits of art, it also plays an important therapeutic role. Students often find creative ways to express externally what they are working on internally. Therapists will often review the art with the student as they work together to overcome obstacles to success, or to support and resource newly acquired insights.
