Experience with and knowledge of the arts is a vital part of a complete education. The arts are rich disciplines that include a vibrant history, an exemplary body of work to study, and compelling cultural traditions. An education in the arts is an essential part of the academic curriculum for the achievement of human, social, and economic growth. The education of our students in the disciplines of dance, music, theater, and visual art is critical to their personal success as we move into the twenty-first century. The visual and performing arts courses are in alignment with the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards and reflect the philosophy outlined in the standards.
