SANTA FE ISD FINE ARTS
The mission of Santa Fe ISD Fine Arts is to enrich learning by inspiring students to explore and develop creative expression through the arts. As a district, our stakeholders are reaching a collective understanding that ALL students benefit from the opportunity to learn about and experience the arts. The arts provide motivation to learn by emphasizing active engagement, disciplined attention, persistence and risk taking. In SFISD we celebrate the arts for the value they add to learning and to preparing for life. The Fine Arts mission aligns with the district mission in ensuring that ALL students ACHIEVE and SUCCEED through innovative strategies and collaborative relationships. This belief paves the way for the arts to be recognized as a part of a proven strategy to improve and ACHIEVE student SUCCESS in other core subjects as well.
On campuses across the district, opportunities for students to participate in high-quality arts instruction and activities are the result of integrating art and music into the K-12 curriculum. Our programs are very successful in both UIL and non UIL competitive events and advance beyond the district level to regional and state competitions. Fine Arts is alive and well in Santa Fe ISD!
