The arts are a vital part of our curriculum. For many students, creative expression is a powerful teaching and learning tool -- and many of our students find the arts to be a powerful channel for expressing their diverse voices.
Drama: Performing arts instill both a fundamental knowledge of theatre basics and an applied practice of the art. Students learn the many nuances of performance and even practice writing original scenes.
Music: The vocal and instrumental music program at Sterne helps students discover and develop their musical talents and skills. Students of all levels are able to participate in a variety of music classes as an elective or after-school club. Student music is showcased at school-wide celebrations and events.
Visual Arts: Sterne's visual arts program supports creative expression as students learn to design and direct their own projects based on their interests and curiosity. Sterne's art faculty employ a variety of media and techniques, including painting, drawing, sculpting, and design (including introductory Design Thinking and career-focused courses in the Upper School). The visual arts curriculum includes the language of art, history of art, and hands-on practice for a well-rounded approach to the world of art.
