Arts Education

In an era of dwindling arts education funding, ASB remains committed to a rich and comprehensive arts education.  Students in all grades receive an arts curriculum that includes music, drama, and visual art.  Additionally, students can participate in Band, Choir, and Theatre Ensemble.  Research has shown that arts improve skills in math and reading, and also promotes creativity, social development, and self-worth. According to a study conducted by the National Endowment for the Arts students who are exposed to an arts curriculum are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement and three times more likely to be awarded for school attendance.
