    District Visual and Performing Arts Mission

    Orange Public School District's Visual and Performing Arts goal is to unlock each child's potential and improve our students’ achievement through the arts. Studies have shown that students who attend schools in which art is included in the curriculum achieve higher on standardized tests, and because of these statistics, our mission is to provide the arts for every child.  

    The Visual and Performing Arts Department offers art in the content area of drama, dance, instrumental, and choral to enrich the lives of the students and improve academic growth. We believe that art bridges creativity with academics to foster and develop the whole child.  Our teachers create rigorous assignments, incorporating English, math, history, culture, and technology into daily arts lessons preparing students to be successful global citizens of the 21st Century.  Through art exhibits and performances, we foster community involvement, which joins the child and the community.  

    We also provide extra-curricular programs to further develop the child.  If you would like to learn about some of our after school programs, please feel free to contact me and I will be glad to tell you about additional opportunities for your child.
