Fine Arts

  • The Arts

     

    Marion County Public Schools is proud to offer well-rounded, comprehensive arts instruction in our district. Every elementary school offers a full-time music and art teacher. Our secondary schools offer a variety of band, choir, guitar, visual art, theatre, and dance programs. 

    The Fine Arts are an essential part of the K-12 academic curriculum and a critical component of every child's education. The Fine Arts are academic subjects that also promote social and emotional development and civic engagement. The arts serve as a creative outlet that connects students to a larger world.

    Involvement in the arts is directly linked to cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills.  The arts also improve student motivation, concentration, confidence, self-esteem, communication, empathy, and teamwork, which results in improved attendance and a reduction in student dropout rates.
