Visual & Performing Arts

Mission Hills High School offers a balanced, comprehensive, standards-based arts program. Courses are offered in dance, music, theater and visual art. We are a team of artists and student artists, committed to pursuing excellence in our fields and collaborating to provide meaningful experiences in the arts for the school community.

The arts:

  • Enhance and balance the curriculum
  • Provide students with opportunities to propose and solve problems
  • Expand perceptual skills
  • Celebrate the achievement of diverse cultures
  • Provide students with the creative skills to be productive participants in today’s economy

The Visual and Performing Arts standards are grouped under the following strands:

Historical and Cultural Context

Aesthetic Valuing

How do I feel about it?
