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

Music is rock band. No choir or band/orchestra instruments. One of the two music teachers was nice but the other often video taped the kids as a threat when they were misbehaving.

Drama? Not really, they put on a school wide show every Xmas or spring. They were uncomfortably badly done.

There is an art teacher but she was stressed about supplies all year. - Dec 28, 2017

A. There are a great variety of electives for each grade level. Fine Arts, Music, and Dance are offered in all divisions, and Foreign Languages (Italian, German, French and Spanish) classes are offered in each grade level in both middle and high school divisions. Additionally, at the high school level, within the Fine & Performing Arts department the school offers Drama, 2D and 3D Art, B&W and Digital Photography, Band, Choir, and Video Production. The Physical Education department also offers Aerobics, Personal Nutrition, and Fitness. Christmas and end of the year drama/music/dance performances across all divisions tend to be big productions and ambitious undertakings. Monthly events include classical music performances, student art exhibits, and family dance workshops. - Sep 20, 2013
B - All the students receive art, music, and drama.Because the school is fairly small, everybody just takes them - they are not necessarily "electives". - Aug 3, 2011
