Art in the Middle School
Like in the Upper School, art is part of every student’s experience. Rather than focusing on a specific form of art, our Middle School program focuses on exploring a variety of mediums, often connecting specific projects to the curriculum in social studies, science, and English. In addition to visual arts, our Middle School program includes band and chorus, as well as a variety of elective art offerings that vary from year-to-year.
All sixth graders take visual art and a music course, while seventh and eighth graders choose between music and visual arts. Theatrical performances are often integrated into English at each grade level and sometimes take place during Middle School Focus Days. The arts are a vital part of the Middle School experience.
