Some are co-curricular, meaning their grade is based on in-class assessments and after school rehearsals/performances. Some courses possess a lab fee, and others utilize fundraising where parents and students work with an outside school booster organization.
Our Mission Statement: To facilitate leadership and learning, not only in the field of art, but also in putting artistic creativity to use to help foster growth and connection with community.
