The Arts — Music, Drama, and Visual Arts
The Arts programs at Nishimachi — Visual Arts, Music, and Drama — provide an education rich in aesthetic experiences that are open ended, exploratory in nature, and meaningful. Participation is highly valued, and teachers work to help students identify their strengths and chart their progress. Unique opportunities present themselves for students to express themselves in ways not afforded them in other subjects. Lifelong participation and appreciation for the Arts is the main goal.
In addition to curricular offerings, there are also public performance and exhibition opportunities throughout the year. All middle school students participate in at least one all-school drama production a year.
