About Arts

Our Story

Since the beginning of ICEF Public Schools, the Visual and Performing Arts Department has been an integral part of the whole school curriculum. A comprehensive and vibrant arts program is essential to providing a prodigious education that helps students to explore their talents. This program dedicates itself to building creative, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.

The mission of the ICEF Visual and Performing Arts Department is: "To prepare students to compete in top arts colleges as culturally aware, critical thinkers and creative problem solvers who employ imagination and integrity." This mission was founded on the need for expression through the arts and for an understanding of visual communication in contemporary society.

All kindergarten through 5th grade students are required to take arts classes. Middle and high school students are offered a wide array of visual and performing arts classes from which to choose. All arts classes start with the foundations of art language. The goal of preparing students to attend the top arts colleges is achieved through educating and preparing students for the many creative industries available.
