The arts

Building an appreciation for the arts begins early at Independence. General music instruction starts in preschool, inspiring young students to participate in the instrumental and choral programs that become available in Lower School.

Art class is part of the curriculum at every grade level beginning in preschool, with students exploring a wide variety of fine art methods, including ceramics, in well-equipped art rooms.

Special field trips to concerts, plays and other cultural venues begin in Early Childhood and continue throughout Middle School, enriching the academic program and adding valuable real-world experiences.
