Middle School Arts

Engage, Explore, and See the World in a New Way

The Arts Department faculty is committed to promoting artistic excellence through self-discovery, creative expression, and collaboration. Through creative risk-taking and the application of technical skills, our program builds confidence and discipline in students. The Arts program promotes empathy and an appreciation for the artistic contributions of others.

Arts Curriculum

Art in Action

Seventh and eighth graders may choose to participate in the middle school musical in the spring. All who are interested in participating will get to join in on the fun! The rehearsals typically take place after school and during the Exploration block. Students who participate in the musical can also participate in sports.

All middle school students are welcomed and encouraged to join chorus, regardless of how much singing experience they might have. Music specifically composed for middle school voices, interests, and talents will be presented publicly at winter and spring concerts. Our goal is to nurture a lifelong love of music while teaching healthy vocal techniques.

All middle school students with interest and/or experience on wind, brass or percussion instruments are encouraged to join the Middle School Instrumental Ensemble, which meets on opposite days from the Middle School String Ensemble. Our goal is to nurture a love of ensemble playing and musicianship.

More advanced players (with two or more years of experience on their instruments) are encouraged to continue their musical development by playing with their peers. Often this group is split into smaller ensembles based on their musical interests. (Examples include jazz and classical).
