The dramatic arts are integrated into the curriculum at every level. The curriculum is designed to encourage students to use their imaginations, perform with self-confidence, participate collaboratively, and enhance problem-solving skills.
In our Early Childhood and Primary Grades, students retell stories, recite poetry, and role play throughout the course of their experience. These opportunities begin to develop the poise and confidence displayed in later years.
In Intermediate and Middle School, students are presented with more formal dramatic performances. Each grade level has at least one signature performance every school year.
