The Fine & Practical Arts Department include Visual Arts, Music, Family & Consumer Sciences (FACS), and Technology. Aligned with our District Mission and Common Core Literacy, our curricula emphasize critical and creative thinking and problem-solving. Whether composing music, creating a piece of art, developing a personal nutrition plan or designing an engine, students in our classes apply new knowledge to interactive projects, understanding how content-specific information is used in real-world contexts. Our focus on the creative process encourages students to reflect, revise and refine their work.
Our department offers students a wide variety of courses and experiences in visual art, music, FACS, and technology to both middle and high school students as well as several extra-curricular opportunities. Our student work is showcased throughout the year at various events and performances.
