What fine arts electives are available (music, drama, visual arts)?

In VIS electives don't really exist because PE, design and fine arts subjects are valued the same as math, English and science. Although this is nice, the school does not focus enough on core English and mathematics classes so some students are not well prepared for the IB or struggle when they move back to their home country. - Oct 11, 2017
The kids have music 3 x per week. The kids put on two full shows a year for the parents. This year it involved singing and instruments. In elementary school, the kids take a foreign language. Chinese or French are offered. There is "mother tongue" for those who want their kids to have the mother tongue taught for a portion of the day. - Jan 21, 2016
