Eisenhower Middle School and Roxbury High School are Choice Schools for the Visual & Performing Arts. All visual arts courses are designed for the students to explore art through the theory and practice of art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics. Students are eligible to apply for an array of programs in our extensive visual art program with a four-year college prep track including AP Art & Design and numerous electives that include both digital and traditional fine and commercial arts.
All visual arts classes help to shape students into critical thinkers, problem solvers, and effective communicators, which inherently become applied in all aspects of life. Through creating, responding, connecting and presenting, students develop social emotional learning skills to demonstrate 21st Century Skills of Self Awareness, Self Management, Responsible Decision Making, Relationship Skills, and Social Awareness.
