Amphitheater Public School District is committed to keeping the Fine Arts in our schools. We are very fortunate that our community agrees and supports funding for Fine Arts.
Many studies have shown the social and academic benefits to 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. We are especially prod of our Fine Arts Program.
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.
At Walker, our Arts Program is a very big deal!
We have a huge, fantastic Band, Orchestra, and Choir.
