It is the goal of the Amphitheater School District’s Art Education Department to provide fine art opportunities in all of our schools as studies show significant social and academic benefits from arts in schools.
Critical links studies point to strong evidence that arts education helps students develop cognitive and social capacities that are important to success in school, life, and work (Deasy, 2002). We believe students must have many different opportunities to build on those skills. Art and Music are offered at all levels, from kindergarten through high school. Students may choose Band, Show Choir, Drama, Orchestra, AP Music Theory, 3D Art, Filmmaking and much more. Our students consistently place at the top of regional, state and national fine arts competitions.
