    The Fine Arts are considered to be a Core Academic by the United States Department of Education, as well as the Massachusetts Board of Education.  Without an extensive education in the creative and expressive processes that are fundamental to the Arts, a student’s education is incomplete.

    Through the Fine and Applied Arts programs, students are able to experiment, express themselves, explore and achieve personal goals through a variety of carefully designed curricular and co-curricular activities and lessons.

    Visual Art
    We take pride in our solid program, which emphasizes the making of art, solving complex visual problems, art history, and development of the ability to verbalize about art.

    The Art courses offered provide a sequential program of experiences that will enable the future artist to pursue post-secondary education in art or to continue making quality art as an avocation.  We provide an environment in which the student will develop the abilities of artistic expression.  Students are introduced to a variety of media and techniques that develop, challenge, and enhance creative thinking, problem solving and individual expression.

    Music and Drama

    Music Department Mission Statement

    We pledge to create a positive and supportive creative learning environment, and provide a program of high quality music education and training in which members will build a foundation for life-long contribution to the cultural enlightenment of the community. 

    In music, people express ideas and emotions that they cannot express in language alone.  In order to understand the range and depth of the human imagination, one must have knowledge of the arts.

    The Music department pledges to create a positive and supportive learning environment.  We provide a program of high quality music education and training in which members will build a foundation for life-long contribution to the cultural enlightenment of the community.

    Technology Education
    The Technology course of study offers students opportunities to explore and develop technical and occupational competencies in a variety of fields.  These courses are designed to develop marketable skills, build self-confidence, and provide exposure to a range of career options offered in each technical cluster.  The sequencing of technical and academic courses prepares students for post-secondary education and/or the world of work, whether they choose to enter the work place directly from high school, or select to pursue post-secondary education in a technical training program, or a two or four year college.  Due to budgetary constraints, students are charged for wood, metals, and some graphics materials in appropriate courses.
