At Grandview High School, “The Arts Make a Difference!” Arts education is essential to each person’s development. It is a principal means for helping students discover beauty and joy in life. Performing and visual arts are vehicles for cultivating personal expression and for fostering creative potential. As a result of participation in the arts, students discover our shared cultural heritage and prepare for meaningful lifelong activities. Considering the many benefits of an arts education, participation in one or more areas of Grandview’s diverse and dynamic arts program should be an integral part of the course of study for all students wanting a well-rounded educational experience.
