23
Why the Arts?
  • There is a demonstrated, direct correlation
    between improved SAT scores and time spent
    studying the arts. In 1997, The College Board
    reported that students with four years of study
    in the arts outscored students with no arts
    instruction by a combined total of 101 points on
    the verbal and mathematics portions of the SAT.

The arts have a unique ability to communicate the
ideas and emotions of the human spirit.
Connecting us to our history, our traditions, and
our heritage, the arts have a beauty and power
unique in our culture.
24
The Arts Teach . . .
Self Expression in a positive and productive
way Self Confidence knowing you are ready
able to perform Self Discipline patience to
wait for self and others Work Ethic discipline
to stay until completion Teamwork depending on
others as much as self Appreciation of Others
the ability to applaud their creativity Tolerance
appreciating cultures other than our own
