Fine Arts: Middle School
Our Band elective is offered to students in grades 5-12. Fifth grade students have the opportunity to learn an instrument in our beginning band. Middle School students continue their growth in our Intermediate Band program. High School Band performs a variety of genres from classical concert pieces to fan inspiring pep selections at various athletic events. Intermediate and Concert Bands participate in the annual ACSI festival in Sacramento. Concert Band travels to Anaheim every other year to perform in festivals, participate in outreach and play in (and have fun at) Disneyland.
Our Fall Musical unties ages 9 through 18 in a full scale Broadway style production for the Cascade Theatre stage. These shows are performed for the public and have drawn a following from not only our school and parents, but also community members as well.
In the Spring, 7th through 12th grade students audition for our Spring Dramatic Production. The plays vary from light-hearted fun to Shakespeare and are performed in our own facilities. The Spring Drama has been a long-standing favorite for many years.
Additionally, we offer a classroom drama elective in High School where students learn the foundation of the entire dramatic process.
Art is offered to middle school and high school students. In addition, a Graphic Design class is offered to high school students. Students learn about art history, becoming familiar with a variety of classical and modern artists in combination with various art movements. Art and Graphic Design are places for students to learn and examine the elements and principles of visual design while using that experience in the creation of their own individual artwork. Creative thinking, problem solving, and the ability to take risks are strongly encouraged.
