The Arts at
St Joseph High School
St Joseph High School believes that every student is entitled to a well-rounded education that includes exposure to the arts. All students should possess a basic understanding and appreciation of the arts in our world, and how the arts relate to society.
A firm foundation in the arts develops cognitive, analytical, problem solving and task completion skills. In addition, the arts allow students to develop self-expression using visual, aural, and performance mediums.
We firmly believe that arts instruction helps students be more culturally aware and understand world history more fully. Students who have the opportunity to express themselves through the arts are more able to use the arts as a means to solve problems and increase acceptance of cultural differences.
