SCHOOL PROGRAM / ARTS & ACTIVITIES
Meeting the Aesthetic Needs of Our Students.
Instruction in the performing arts occurs in various ways:
Dramatic literature in every English class
Acting and backstage instruction in an elective drama class
Production of plays for the school and community
Production of musical shows usually twice each year
K-6 students participate in the annual Speech Meet where they learn confidence and public speaking skills.
Trying to Meet Student Needs. The arts are a growing area of the curriculum at NCCS. The offerings vary somewhat from year to year to meet the interests and needs of the current students. NCCS requires students to take at least 10 units in the visual or performing arts to graduate. In reality, many students take much more due to their sincere love and talent that they have developed over the years.
Arts in the Classroom. Elementary students have multiple opportunities in their classes and from supplementary teachers to learn about and practice various arts.
Junior-Senior High Opportunities in the Arts. Three types of courses are offered in the arts at the junior and senior high levels: culinary, industrial, and the visual arts. Junior high students get an introduction to the arts in an enrichment period. High school students get more in-depth experiences in both semester and year-long courses. Students learn some of the history of their art as well as skills in performance. Instruction culminates in presentations of different types.
Three types of courses are offered in music at the junior and senior high levels: general music, and after-school band option, and Worship Team.
