  • Classroom discussions and activities will provide opportunities for students to share their own cultural backgrounds, traditions, and stories, fostering a sense of pride and belonging among all students.
  • Project Based learning and inquiry based activities will allow students to explore topics of personal relevance and interest, encouraging them to draw connections between their experiences and the broader world.

Learning to Love Music

Our youngest students develop a passion for music through regular classes that explore sound and music. They build literacy in various styles, progressing to vocal technique, violin instruction, and instrument care.

As they advance, students choose to play a string instrument (violin, viola, cello) or sing in a choir, alternating each semester. They engage in diverse historical repertoires and attend group lessons twice a week.

Older students delve into songwriting, producing, and theater, focusing on an instrument of their choice. They collaborate on a fall class album and a spring theatrical performance, with weekly 1:1 lessons preparing them for their elementary capstone, celebrating their identities as young musicians.

The Art of Identity

Students will participate in art weekly in a dedicated art space with a focus on learning a wide variety of art mediums and techniques. Lessons are connected to core content taught in classes and are designed to provide students with a comprehensive and diverse exploration of art and artists of color, fostering cultural appreciation, creativity, and social awareness.
