Drama & Arts
Art classes at the high school level follow the NYS syllabus of art sequence courses including Studio Art, Creative Crafts, Ceramics & Sculpture, and Graphic Design. 90% of students complete the art sequence.
Music consists of classes in general music theory, choral singing, band, and individual instrument lessons. Students with more advanced musical ability may audition for smaller ensembles. Major concerts and other public performances and competitions are scheduled throughout the year.
Dramatic Arts is very popular with students. They are selected for character roles through an audition process, or may choose to participate as stagehands and production crew.

“Beauty will save the world.”

“A school without music is a school without a soul.”
