Strong arts build well-rounded, strong schools and strong schools build cultured, educated and strong communities.
Middle school students can begin an intensive study in music through a variety of course offerings including band, strings and choir.* Band and strings programs begin in sixth grade with no instrumental training needed to participate.
High school courses offer a wide variety of skill-based courses in band, orchestra and choir. Students can find a home in award winning WCS music ensembles both during the school day and after school whether they intend to pursue music as a career or simply enjoy performing with an ensemble. WCS also offers courses in music history and AP music theory.*
* Specific courses vary by school.
Visual art is available as a nine-week course in 6th-8th grade. High school art course begin with Visual Art I, a general overview of studio production. Students can then select to focus on 2-dimensional art (drawing, painting, printmaking, etc.) or 3-dimensional art (sculpture and ceramics). WCS offers advanced placement courses in both studio art and art history.
