Department of Fine Arts Mission
The fine arts program of the Ipswich Public Schools will provide all students, in kindergarten through grade twelve, with a developmentally challenging, sequential curriculum by qualified fine arts teachers. The fine arts curriculum will include dance, drama, music, and the visual arts. The Ipswich school community will work together with the greater Ipswich community to provide environments and resources which promote and support life-long learning in the arts for all of its citizens.
Because it is committed to a comprehensive arts education for all students,
kindergarten through grade twelve, the Fine Arts Department has adopted the following educational goals:
Statement of Philosophy
Knowing and practicing the fine arts is fundamental to human development. The fine arts should be an integral part of every student’s education.
All basic subjects, including the fine arts, require time for study, practice, and reflection.
The fine arts make a contribution that reaches beyond their intrinsic value.
An education in the fine arts benefits society.
