What fine arts electives are available (music, drama, visual arts)?
They had music 30 minutes 2x a week (some grades I think had 60 minutes 1x), drama 1x a week, Art 60 minutes 1x a week. She liked all the classes. Drama put on a production each year and all grades could try out. We didn't participate, but went to see Shrek, Jr and it was so well done! The kids did a great job. 5th grade were the leads. Music performed at several assemblies. The art projects that came home were nice. - Feb 2020
The electives are great. My children are involved in the strings program (strict teacher who often caters to the Korean population, but otherwise a good teacher), drama (Great productions. The ES school play often gives a chance to 5th graders to take leading roles), and art class is OK, though they just got rid of a fantastic teacher a couple of years ago perhaps because of budget cuts. I don't know, but everyone misses her, and the type of art my children bring home in ES has declined. MS art seems strong with a focus on different mediums. - Feb 2017
