|At Friends' Central we believe that the highest expression of creativity is the belief that anything is possible. The visual and performing arts are essential to every student's year at Friends' Central, both as discrete courses and as an integral part of our core curriculum. We offer students numerous and varied ways to express their creativity as they increase their self-confidence. A walk through our halls demonstrates the rich and deep exposure our students have to studio arts. From our music rooms you may hear the sounds of first graders learning the parts of an orchestra or the Upper School chorus mastering a four-part harmony. Music classes are required for students from nursery through 10th grade. Dramatic productions are a required piece of the Lower School curriculum and an optional opportunity for Middle and Upper School students. The self-discipline and intellectual flexibility learned in the arts spills over into all aspects of our students' lives.|
