Fine Arts

District and Campus Ratings

Background: With the exception of the fine arts elective that is mandated under the graduation plans for our current high school students, fine arts are not required by the education code. Nevertheless, CSISD campuses provide many fine arts opportunities for students at all levels. Elementary students rotate through art and music every week with teachers who are specialists in art and music, not simply classroom teachers. Intermediate students' elective rotations include art, music and drama. Fifth graders have the option to take orchestra, while sixth graders may choose orchestra, choir or band for the entire school year. Middle school students can choose electives in art, choir, band or orchestra. High school students have all of the other options plus theatre arts, and dance classes.
