Island School believes the fine arts are essential for every student’s complete development and education. We strive to expose all students to creative experiences through various mediums and content areas – visual arts, theater arts, music, and Hawaiian Studies.
Students in elementary, middle, and high school study theatre arts in some form. In elementary school, theatre arts classes are offered in third and fifth grades. Middle school students are enrolled in fine arts classes, rotating each trimester between music, visual arts, and theatre arts classes. High school students are required to take theatre arts electives and select these from a range of classes including improvisation, acting, stagecraft, play production, and scene study. Each year major theatre arts events are produced by Island School students and staff, including two high school plays, a middle school play, and a fifth grade play.
