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

All of these, there are loads of electives available for middle and high school. There are full strings, band and choir programs as well as guitar. There are several different visual arts options as well. - Jan 2021

A - all grades in grade school have art once a week with a specific art teacher.Musical instrument instruction also available for all grades.My son is learning cello.Grades 2-3 do an after-school drama club, with a performance (last year they did Jungle Book).Grades 4-5 also do an after-school drama club, with a performance (last year they did Alice in Wonderland).Great! - Dec 2012

B: Very good. There is art most of the year. I'd have prefered it be offered all year. There is music offered all year and it is a more complete program. If they offered art all year, as they do with music, I'd give the school an A. - Nov 2012

A: It's a school of 1,300 kids and it's got lots of revenue to draw from, so all of the usual big international school offerings are available here. My son hoped for American football or baseball and found no football and only softball for boys, but that's a European thing. It's hard to find very American sports like he likes while abroad. He understands that. But there's a huge theater and a small theater, an indoor pool, tennis courts, big fields, astro turf and grass fields, ice rinks in winter, two gyms, etc. It's a good program. I'm not so sure about art. It seems like a good program. Theater is a real draw though, for sure. - Aug 2010
