The Arts Program

At SIS we teach the Visual arts and Music using the PYP frameworks and the arts standards (NCAS)

The National Core Arts Standards: [See below]

PK1 -2    KG & FBP    2019-2020 School Year

The Creative & Performing Arts Program is designed to offer Early Primary students a space to explore their own individual creativity as well as collaborate with fellow classmates. Students can learn visual arts techniques and uses for a variety of mediums as well as grow in their musicality through voice, rhythm and instrument explorations. We work closely with the homeroom teachers to integrate the creative arts learning with classroom explorations and offer more space and materials to enhance and supplement other curricular areas.
